Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Unit for Brain Injuries

The ground-breaking Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Unit for Brain Injuries has been operating at ELEPAP since 2008, in collaboration with the related Brain Injury Day Treatment Program of the ΝΥU Langone Health, Rusk Institute New York, USA.

The rehabilitation of a person who suffered a brain injury should not follow and for that matter should not be expected to follow the usual medical model. When a structural injury occurs in the brain, the injury is usually permanent and irreversible.

Holistic Neuropsychological Rehabilitation is a set of therapeutic interventions, which deal globally with the cognitive, functional and emotional impact of brain injury, which hinder a patient's re-integration.

The Unit accepts Adults with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Brain Injuries (strokes, aneurysms, anoxic encephalopathies, intracranial tumours, encephalitis, arteriovenous malformations) who:

  • are between 18 and 60 years old
  • have suffered a brain injury at least 3 months before
  • have a level of alertness and stamina to attend a group program of 5 hours a day.
  • have basic verbal communication skills
