This course will cover common difficulties in social cognition (e.g., mentalising, emotion recognition, social problem-solving) in both acquired and progressive neurological conditions in adulthood, and contemporary approaches to the rehabilitation of these difficulties. The main characteristics and theoretical underpinnings of the dominant approaches to social cognition rehabilitation are outlined, plus links and overlaps with the psychotherapy literature.
The second half of the course explores the impact of different social cognition difficulties for different forms of social relationships around adults with neurological conditions, plus the application of specific rehabilitation strategies unique to each social relationship.
