1. Therapy Rationale and Evidence
Chapter one will describe the phenomenon of learned nonuse in neurologic populations, its relationship to neuroplasticity, the rationale and development of CIT, and challenges associated with its practical clinical administration.
2. Getting Started
This chapter details the techniques and outcome measures that are used to initiate mCIT in the clinic, including how to screen for the right candidates, the outcome measures that are used.
