An alternative approach to the management of patients with brain damage is the rehabilitation of behavioural and psychological skills. Rehabilitative approaches have been developed in particular in the context of treatment and recovery of non-progressive brain damage, as for example occurs in stroke and trauma, rather than for progressive neurodegenerative disorders. This chapter reviews such approaches. Rehabilitation addresses both the development of behavioural and cognitive strategies that can allow patients to develop alternative strategies to achieve their goals, and the fact that behavioural experience and training can alter the course of the structural reorganisation itself.

Keywords:   rehabilitation, patient management, brain damage, trauma, neurodegenerative disorders, cognitive strategies
