Neurobehavioural Rehabilitation

specialised behavioural programmes including for those who may be subject to a section of the Mental Act 1983 (amended 2007)

Most neurological conditions result in some altered functions and sometimes this can affect the way people behave and express themselves. Our specialist hospital services provide neurobehavioural programmes for men and women who present with significant challenges.

Individuals in these services may also be detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007). We aim to minimise risk and maximise opportunities for new learning, typically employing multicomponent interventions drawn from the latest developments in neurobehavioural rehabilitation. The programmes incorporate methods from Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), including antecedent control and contingency management, alongside specialist neurobehavioural learning programmes all of which have a proven evidence base.

The clinical team includes highly experienced neurobehavioural rehabilitation practitioners and trainers. Programmes are overseen by Clinical Psychologists and delivered by a range of neurobehavioural practitioners who are specialists in their field.
