Accreditation Check:
Clinicians report memory as a primary post-injury target of cognitive rehabilitation. Individuals with acquired brain injury and their families report memory deficits as one of the worst and most persisting post-injury problems. This chapter will report on the evidence base supporting memory intervention and will present therapeutic approaches targeting remediation of memory deficits.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

1. Treatment of Memory - Part 1

It is important that the memory interventions used with patients are evidence-based and that they incorporate principles of learning theory. This chapter will provide an update on the ‘state of the science’ of memory intervention and describe three phases of learning that memory interventions should incorporate.

2. Treatment of Memory - Part 2

Traditionally, memory interventions are described as being of two types: restorative and compensatory. It is important that memory training approaches are informed by multiple patient factors. This chapter will define both types of interventions and identify patient candidacy considerations for each.

3. Treatment of Memory - Part 3

Errorless learning, spaced retrieval, and metacognitive strategy training are three commonly used, evidence-supported techniques used therapeutically to improve memory. This chapter will describe these techniques, patient candidacy for them, and their importance facilitating intervention outcomes.
