Description
Executive functioning (EF) deficits are an obstacle to social and vocational recovery. This advanced workshop presents an integrative approach for improving EF after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The approach combines two empirically based interventions: problem-solving (SWAPS) and emotional regulation (EmReg). Part 1 provides the theoretical and empirical basis of the two interventions and outcomes from two randomized controlled trials. Parts 2 and 3 involve training in SWAPS and EmReg, including case examples. Part 4 is a simulation of a treatment session facilitated by the instructors.
Learning Objectives
1. Explain the consequences of executive dysfunction following TBI.
2. Assess appropriateness and readiness for participation in an integrative problem solving/emotional regulation treatment.
3. Describe the five steps of problem-solving training (SWAPS).
4. Describe a model of emotional regulation following TBI (EmReg).
5. Utilize an integrative approach of SWAPS and EmReg when working with individuals with TBI.
6. Explain factors that optimize treatment delivery and integration of SWAPS and EmReg.
7. Predict and address challenges in the delivery of SWAPS and EmReg.
