An integrated programme which comprises eight work modules:
- Executive functions
- Daily living activities
- Social skills
- Social cognition
It consists of 300 easy to conduct rehabilitation exercises with instructions and answers, guidelines to assess change, follow-up sheets and suggestions for exercises to be done at home.
The exercises are organised by cognitive subdominions and levels of difficulty. The programme contains recommendations and guidelines on how to assess change or improvement, and collect and use information in the work sessions with patients. The material is practical, attractively presented in colour and contains instructions for patients and answers for therapists.
It can be used in individual or group sessions. It is advisable for the therapist to have a background in neuropsychology.
The effectiveness of this instrument has been tested with several sample populations and findings have been published in high impact Spanish and international scientific journals. Trials are currently being held with other clinical populations.
The programme was officially presented on 26 September 2012 at the National Conference of Psychiatry in Bilbao.
