Description

The nexus linking neuroanatomy and behavior is a complex relationship, difficult for any clinician to grasp.

Lacking a fundamental understanding of neurobehavioral changes and deficits in patients following a stroke or traumatic brain injury can quickly derail any treatment plan.

Watch Jerome Quellier, a clinical specialist in traumatic brain injury and communications disorders, who has over 25 years of clinical expertise. With a career long focus on the intricacies of neurology, Jerome’s passion and acumen is unmatched.

Discover how you can predict dysfunction and intuitively develop a foundation for assessment and treatment, all before the patients first visit.

In this comprehensive training, you’ll discover intermediate level neurophysiology linked to cognitive-linguistic function and behavioral management. Including expert guidance to:

  • Practical solutions to avoid escalation, mitigate neurological sensitivity, improve sensory processing, and more!
  • Practice at the forefront of neurobehavioral rehab with strategies to rewire the brain.
  • Enhance functional outcomes with newfound knowledge of neurotransmission and communication centers.
  • Leap into new learning for speech, perception, spatial recognition, and processing.
  • Anticipate dysfunction, predict behavioral change, and accelerate treatment pathways leading to enhanced function, occupation, and quality of life.

Purchase today and separate yourself from other clinicians as a change maker in neurobehavioral rehabilitation!

Objectives

  1. Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to neuro-behavioral control.  
  2. Evaluate the neurophysiology of memory and the impact of fear/anger on new learning and memory.   
  3. Examine the functional impact of both traumatic and nontraumatic injuries on cognitive centers within the brain to improve participation in physical activity.  
  4. Develop communication between neurotransmitters and the relevant communication system in the brain to improve function.  
  5. Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement, attention, and accuracy in therapy.  
  6. Utilize neuroanatomy-based interventions to de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers.
