PSYCHOLOGICAL REHABILITATION

Following an accident or injury that causes a physical impairment, psychological rehabilitation describes the restoration or reinforcement of an effective and adaptive identity in the injured. Psychological tools may include individual or group therapy, ability assessment and the psychopharmacopia. The hoped for end result being a healthy, adaptive and highly functioning personality.
