Personal Narrative Film: Cog Rehabilitation After TBI

Course Number

 Cheryl Green MS, CCC-SLP

Course Preview:
Cognitive rehabilitation addressing the impairment level after brain injury poses a challenge for generalization at the participation level. This presentation offers an example of community-based, self-directed cognitive rehabilitation in a natural setting through creating personal narrative-based films. Film content addresses deficits in context, providing a starting point for context-oriented treatment and a model for multi-faceted social communication intervention.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the WHO International Classification of Health, Disability, and Heath (ICF) model of disability and intervention
  • Identify goals for cognitive rehabilitation at the impairment, activity limitation, and social participation levels
  • Examine the overlap between arts, storytelling, and social communication interventions
  • Describe a context-oriented treatment approach in clinic- and community-based settings
  • Describe filmed personal narratives as a potential therapy tool, targeting compensations, social participation and quality of life
