Golan suffered a serious brain injury in the war, and must cope with the consequences;
Nadav, ten years old, with a congenital orthopedic disability that prevented his leg from developing properly, is struggling for his standing among his classmates;
Rina is dealing with the recurrence of breast cancer and the uncertainty of her future life.
These are but some of the numerous cases described in Mind in Rehabilitation, which provides a glimpse into the experience of persons with disabilities, as seen through their psychotherapists during rehabilitation.
The cases are presented in a complete fashion in order to expose the complexity of the process of adaptation to life with disability experienced by many adults and children alike.
The second part of the book has been devoted to an in-depth look at the world of rehabilitation in general, and that of emotional rehabilitation in particular. It sheds light on the main issues in rehabilitation, the emotional processes that take place in response to disability, the way society perceives people with disabilities, and the unique challenges faced by rehabilitation psychologists.
I received "Mind in Rehabilitation" by Dr. Eyal Heled to review on my blog!
Dr. Heled shares his experiences of what people with disabilities go through and how rehabilitation therapy helps them.
He mentions what disabled individuals face as they progress through neuropsychological rehabilitation. He focused more on the emotional aspects of rehabilitation.
He describes how the rehabilitation psychologist assists in the process of coping with the crisis and it's implications on many different levels. Different patients with varying types of disabilities can be placed on a spectrum that they can each associate with. He mentions the connection of impairment, rehabilitation and disability. The psychological wats of adapting to the status of disability in society and psychotherapy in rehabilitation.
Very interesting book for anyone to read, especially individuals with disabilities!
I highly recommend it!
