SHOUT Tonight: Colette Beecher on Cognitive Rehabilitation Techniques

Tonight, SHOUT is back in its usual space in the Robert Winston Building with a talk by SHU lecturer and OT practitioner Colette Beecher on Cognitive Rehabilitation Techniques at 6pm.

About the talk: Cognitive rehabilitation principles can be applied to clients with cognitive impairment as a result of neurological disease, or trauma. Cognitive rehabilitation models guide the therapist to select appropriate assessment and interventions. The therapist needs to identify if the client has the potential to improve or due to the nature of their condition may need a more compensatory/adaptive approach.

Aims of the session:
· To explore cognitive rehabilitation techniques
· To explore new models of cognitive rehabilitation
· To explore current intervention resources 

Registration and light refreshments: From 5.30pm and the talk begins at 6.00pm with a comfort break at around 6.30pm. SHOUT events usually finish before 7.30pm.

Costs: £2.00 for students and BAOT members, £3.00 for non-members.

And that's not all!....

Wednesday Wind Down follows at Graze pub on Eccelsal Road for a drink and an opportunity to reflect on the session. We'll be tweeting our thoughts to our SHOUT twitter followers....

We hope to see you there!
