Me Before, Me After is a complete programme for professionals who run rehabilitation groups for brain injury survivors. The programme's overarching goal is to retrieve the person behind the injury by helping survivors master the consequences of their brain injury. The approach combines CBT principles that develop awareness and recognition of mental events with CBT techniques that are instrumental in achieving behaviour change. The manual focuses on the three aspects of acquired brain injury that are integral to achieving gains through rehabilitation: 1) Change-awareness: develops awareness of the changes that are consequent upon brain injury.2) Change-investigation: helps understand why these changes occur; how we interpret them and how we cope with them.3) Change-mastery: helps gain mastery over these changes by developing and mobilising adaptive capability.Including extensive resources for practitioners, clients and support workers, this comprehensive manual provides everything you need in order to run the most effective brain injury rehabilitation groups in one place.
