Abstract

Psychology has a primary role in cognitive rehabilitation along with other disciplines, but may be best qualified for evaluating specific cognitive abilities directing, cognitive-behavioral intervention programs, and measuring outcomes. Several specialties within psychology provide cognitive rehabilitation services; however, current training guidelines are not specific enough to ensure adequate training. These specialties all have areas of strength and limitations, but none of them has published guidelines specific to training in cognitive rehabilitation. In this paper we critique current guidelines, and make suggestions for training to be followed for those psychologists conducting CR.
