Praise For…

"Klonoff has devoted her career to the provision of holistic neurorehabilitation. Her depth of experience and wisdom shine a light for readers who want to emulate this model in their own clinical settings. The book presents the fundamentals of holistic milieu therapy and describes evidence-based and novel approaches to treating cognitive, social communication, and emotional consequences of acquired brain injuries. It discusses how to generalize treatment gains to home and community through work with families and reestablishing important living skills. Klonoff provides enough procedural details, handouts, and other resources for clinicians to confidently implement the interventions in their own practices."--Jill Winegardner, PhD, Director of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center

"Klonoff brings to life her collaborative, dynamic, humanistic approach to post-acute holistic rehabilitation for patients with acquired brain injury. The book captures the central relevance of the uniqueness of each patient, the role of the family, and the importance of maintaining a nurturing atmosphere across the multiple disciplines that make up the rehabilitation team. User-friendly clinical vignettes, checklists, rating scales, and handouts are incorporated throughout. The comprehensive, hands-on orientation of this volume maximizes its value and applicability across health systems, settings, and disciplines."--Jacinta Douglas, PhD, Emeritus Professor, Living with Disability Research Centre, La Trobe University, Australia

"Klonoff and her colleagues have given the contemporary field of neurorehabilitation a strikingly unique gift. This book arms the provider with theoretically and empirically grounded rehabilitation strategies, abundant reproducible forms, and case examples that illustrate the principles and protocols. Klonoff also shares time-tested guidance on how to develop and manage different types of neurorehabilitation programs to ensure program success. I felt as if I was learning something new and important on every page. This fantastic book is a 'must read' for graduate and postgraduate students who want a truly hands-on guide. Any neurorehabilitation provider who reads this book will get a treasure chest of tools to improve their programs, services, and outcomes."--Lance E. Trexler, PhD, HSPP, FACRM, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Indiana University School of Medicine
