Cognitive Therapy (CT)
Using real life situations, cognitive therapists help individuals develop techniques to enhance problem solving, organization and processing skills. By teaching you to create systematic processes and to divide complicated tasks into achievable steps, you can overcome stressful situations and find fulfillment in everyday activities. Cognitive Therapy may involve:
- Identifying individual needs. Some individuals are able to regain skills that were lost while others may need to learn new ways to accomplish tasks.
- Increasing awareness of brain injuries and its effects
- Resolving emotional and behavioral issues
- The use of technology as a tool for reinforcing routines
- Developing memory compensation strategies
- Integrating employment, educational, and independent living goals
