Psychosocial Aspects of Rehabilitation

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Clients’ psychosocial issues can profoundly affect rehabilitation for individuals with disabilities. Most individuals undergoing rehabilitation are under stress, and their ability to cope with anxiety may be compromised. Depression also can occur secondary to physical disability and/or changes in levels of functioning and occupational participation. Clients who are anxious, emotionally upset, or depressed may struggle to concentrate on rehabilitation goals and may not be able to employ therapeutic techniques unless their psychosocial factors are identified and managed. Psychosocial status has been shown to be a significant predictor of physical health. Thus, education on identifying and managing psychosocial concerns within the therapeutic scope of practice is vital for physical, occupational, speech-language pathology, and audiology rehabilitation specialists. The goal of this education program is to provide rehabilitation therapists with information about the definition, incidence, identification, and treatment of clients with psychosocial issues during rehabilitation.
