        A Direct Attention Training Program for Persons with Acquired Brain Injury
                McKay Moore Sohlberg, PhD & Catherine A. Mateer, PhD ~ 2010
  APT-3 is a comprehensive, evidence-based direct attention training program aimed at improving
underlying attention deficits secondary to acquired brain injury. It is an updated version of the
predecessor programs with attention exercises delivered via computer.
  The program targets specific domains of
attention commonly disrupted including:
• Basic Sustained Attention
• Executive Control: Working Memory
• Executive Control: Selective Attention
• Executive Control: Suppression
• Executive Control: Alternating Attention
  A clinician interface allows selection of
exercises and associated parameters to create
individual patient/client exercise profiles that
are easily modifiable as the patient/client progresses.
  The APT-3 software facilitates standardized, efficient delivery of discrete attention tasks and
provides self reflection opportunities. Clinicians deliver this therapy in conjunction with strategy
training and generalization activities.
  The manual clearly describes the principles and procedures for stimulation of discrete attention
subcomponents and methods for encouraging transfer of improved processing to everyday
functioning. The APT-3 software is clinician friendly and designed to support busy professionals
in inpatient and outpatient programs as well as private practice and community programs.
Specific topics covered in the manual include:
• Review of the APT-3 Clinical Attention Framework                  • Research Evidence
• Types of Metacognitive Strategies to Pair with APT                • APT-3 Therapy Principles
• Measuring Treatment Progress & Outcomes                           • The Assessment Process
• Designing Clients’ APT-3 Programs                                 • Goal Attainment Scaling
• Selecting Starter APT-3 Training Tasks                            • Selecting Strategies
• Selecting Goals and/or Generalization Activities                  • Treatment Dosage/Pacing
• Program Modification and General Decision Rules                   • Client Example
What are the Hardware Requirements?
  APT-3 works with computers and laptops running Mac OS 10.5 or newer and Windows XP or
newer. An available USB port is needed to connect the APT-3 USB drive. All software necessary
to run the tool is contained on the drive. The clinician runs the program from the drive; no software
is installed on the computer and any computer can be used to run the therapy program.
                                Attention Process Training APT-3 — Additional Drive
                                  Additonal flash drives may be ordered by users of the full program.
                                The APT-3 flash drive can be used by multiple clinicians with
                                multiple clients. A single drive supports a single clinician using it
                                with any computer and multiple clients. If another clinician uses
                                that drive, the clinician will have access to all the other clinicians’
                                client files and data. In a setting with multiple clinicians, purchasing
                                additional drives is an option.

                                             Book on Behavior
                                Behavior can be one of brain injury’s most
                              perplexing challenges, but not all problems
                              belong to the injured person. Spouses, children,
                              friends, family and bosses, even therapists and
                              caregivers, are equally susceptible! This book
                              helps you understand the intricate factors that
                              cause behavior. It shows how a person’s behavior
                              is affected by other events and circumstances as
                              much as the actual injury. It addresses the many different people,
                              places and resources that are involved. Everybody can work together
                              more effectively when behavior is demystified.
 Written for families, staff, advocates, therapists and professionals, five sections:
  • Introduce the theme of the book
  • Identify a wide range of pertinent contributing factors to behavior
  • Investigate dynamic relationships when people are working together
  • Create focused support plans to promote personal success, and
  • Consider other topical issues that often occur in life with brain injury.
 Each of the book’s 26 chapters focuses on a specific topic with clear and practical guidelines.
Effective behavior change involves collaboration and coordination by all involved parties. It focuses
on helping people succeed instead of stopping people from doing “bad things!”
                               Problem behaviors are usually the result of people not having
                             better ways to accomplish their goals. Problem behaviors can also
                             occur when other people, places and programs do not understand
                             a person’s unique abilities. Find a better solution and the problem
                             is usually resolved. Dr. Jacobs’ emphasis on dos over don’ts offers
                             everybody tremendous benefits. This book’s innovative approach
                             to understanding behavior after brain injury is a dynamic work
                             that integrates illustrative examples, current research findings, best
                             practices and practical advice. Information is presented in a user
                             friendly style that allows the reader to absorb complex information
                             with ready applications to “real life”.

                              information to their unique situation and create personalized plans of
                              action. The material is equally useful in training, staff development
                              and therapeutic sessions. Extensive worksheets help families,
                              clients and clinicians document the effects of a brain injury, develop
                              strategies, implement programs and services, and be effective
                              advocates. Above all, it provides a systematic and comprehensive
                              approach to understanding life with brain injury.

                           Procedure for Assessing Awareness
                          & Adjustment Following Brain Injury
                Kit Malia, CPCRT & Anne Brannagan, MS ~ Second edition, 2008
                            A persisting lack of self awareness is a major obstacle to successful
                          rehabilitation and reintegration of persons with brain injury. It is
                          important to treat poor awareness as a high priority; however, the full
                          extent of impaired self awareness is not always apparent unless specific
                          assessments are implemented by the rehabilitation team. This manual

                            This behaviorally-oriented rehabilitation manual provides a down-to-
                          earth, easy to implement model that is designed to teach, strengthen, and
                          evaluate desired skills in human service interactions. The 5 component
                          interactional model includes...
                            P for positive interactions
                            E for early intervention
                            A for all the time for consistent approaches
                            R for reinforcement of independent behavior
                            L for look for opportunities to increase community participation

  Examples illustrate how to apply the P.E.A.R.L. to clients with behavioral, emotional and cognitive
disorders. A score sheet provides a rating scale to observe interactions and rate performance.
  The PEARL is now being used to guide interactions in rehabilitation programs, community-
based support settings, and family homes across the country. This no-nonsense approach sets the
bar with respect to identifying desired interactional skills, creating clear expectations around their
use, and evaluating whether or not caregivers are practicing what they preach.

                                 We have taken the four functional rehabilitation activity manuals
                               on behavior, cognition, leisure and daily living used by clinicians
                               and made a special manual for families. We selected activities that
                               families easily can use to help an adolescent or adult with behavior,
                               thinking and learning (cognition), leisure interests, and daily living
                               (hygiene, dressing, etc).
                                 This activity manual is especially useful for families with a relative
                               who has a moderate to severe brain injury as many exercises focus
                               on attention, memory, organization, behaviors, anger, emotions
                               and concentration. There are 100 exercises designed to teach and
                               reinforce skills for everyday activities using a step by step format
                               that families can easily follow. Activities are based on things that
                               individuals and families do every day, such as holding conversations,
                               watching television, playing cards, using the telephone, doing
                               laundry, cooking, and playing games.

     Explaining Brain Injury, Blast Injury and PTSD to Children and Teens

               Marilyn Lash, MSW, Janelle Breese Biagioni, Tonya Hellard ~ 2009
                              Sons and daughters often feel confused, scared, anxious and angry
                            when a parent is injured. This guide helps parents explain physical,
                            cognitive, behavioral, social and communicative changes that can
                            follow a brain injury, blast injury or PTSD. Using examples with
                            children of all ages, it explains their emotional reactions to a parent’s
                            brain injury or PTSD and gives strategies for coping. Each chapter has
                            an exercise and practical tips for children, parents and professionals.
                              Based on extensive interviews with children and teens, this guide
                            tells their story through their personal experiences as they grew up
                            with a parent with a brain injury or PTSD. Their comments and
                            insights will resonate with many families. By understanding the
                            anxieties and fears of children, parents learn how to provide emotional
                            support, communicate with children, and help children cope.
 This guide is helpful for families at any stage post injury or recovery as it covers children’s
perspectives from early hospital care to adjusting to life at home after a parent’s injury.

                            Traumatic brain injury has been called the signature wound of the wars in
                          Iraq and Afghanistan. As troops return home, their families and caregivers
                          are searching for information about the effects of concussion, blast and
                          brain injuries. This guide is a special edition for all who are involved in
                          the care and treatment of wounded veterans. It contains information on
                          the full spectrum of injuries from the short term effects of concussions or
                          mild brain injuries to the life long effects of more severe brain injuries.
                          By rewriting our popular tip cards on brain injury, this special guide is a
                          valuable resource filled with information, practical tips and strategies to
help families and caregivers as veterans seek treatment and return to their communities.
 It includes information on…
 • Emotional impact on families when a spouse, parent, sibling, son or daughter has a brain injury
 • Effects of a brain injury on behavior, thinking, emotions, communication and social skills
 • Concussion, post traumatic stress disorder, post traumatic headaches, and substance abuse
 • Effects of a brain injury on employment and accommodations on the job
 • Programs and websites about PTSD and brain injury that provide support and information.

   N EW           The effects of multiple troop deployments - and how to weather the storm
                                          Bridget C. Cantrell, Ph.D. ~ 2010
                     Both active duty service members and veterans know the physical and
                   emotional stresses that accompany multiple deployments to Iraq or Afghanistan.
                   The stresses affect not only our troops but their families and children as well.
                   This insightful book frankly discusses the impact and pressures of multiple
                   deployments and provides strategies to support service members and their
                   families. Part 1 discusses the revolving door of multiple deployments. Part
                   2 has advice for children with a deployed parent as well as families with two
                   deployed parents. Part 3 identifies positive steps for coming home.

                      Tens of thousands of US troops have shown signs of serious stress upon their
                    return home. This book describes stress reactions and explains how to deal with
                    and recognize symptoms as they arise. Many signs of Post Traumatic Stress
                    Disorder (PTSD) are what military stress teams now call Combat Operational
                    Stress (COS). Every participant in a war zone will show some aspects of
                    COS (i.e. hyper-alertness, anxiety, frustration, anger, confusion, intolerance of
                    “stupid” behavior, sleep disruption, etc.). This book helps veterans recognize
                    issues from their tours of duty – and to know that they are not alone on their
                    journey home. *Included in Troops and Veterans Tool Kit.

               Marilyn Lash, MSW, Janelle Breese Biagioni, Tonya Hellard ~ 2009
                     Sons and daughters often feel confused, scared, anxious and angry when
                   a parent is injured. This guide helps parents explain physical, cognitive,
                   behavioral, social and communicative changes that can follow a brain injury,
                   blast injury or PTSD. Using examples with children of all ages, it explains their
                   emotional reactions to a parent’s brain injury or PTSD and gives strategies for
                   coping. Each chapter has an exercise and practical tips for children, parents
                   and professionals. Based on extensive interviews with children and teens, this
                   guide tells their story through their personal experiences as they grew up with
                   a parent with a brain injury or PTSD.

                   Traumatic events can lead to emotional reactions ranging from anxiety and
                 depression to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The person may have been
                 seriously injured or been in a life-threatening situation.

                 of physical and psychological trauma, learn how to communicate their needs,
                 manage anger, deal with traumatic memories, recapture lost intimacy, and
                 recognize their resiliency as a couple.
                   Presented as a practical, step-by-step program, this guide is especially helpful
                 for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) returning from the

                    Mary Beth Williams, PhD & Soili Poijula, PhD ~ 2002
                    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can occur after a person is exposed to
                  a terrifying event or ordeal, such as a car crash, war injuries, violence, natural
                  disaster or sexual abuse. Often individuals with PTSD repeatedly re-experience
                  the ordeal in the form of flashback episodes, recurring memories, nightmares,
                  or frightening thoughts. PTSD symptoms include emotional numbness and
                  sleep disturbances, poor concentration, depression, anxiety, and irritability or
                  outbursts of anger.
                    This workbook helps trauma survivors understand the symptoms and
                  consequences of PTSD and gives exercises and techniques to help deal with
trauma-related symptoms.

                              The Essence of Interdependence
                                 Building community for everyone
                                      Al Condeluci, PhD ~ 2008
                            “The problem” is not that people have disabilities, the problem is how
                          people in a community view people with disabilities. Using the concept of
                          “social capital,” Condeluci explores similarities among all people and the
                          necessary steps to build bridges for personal relationships.
                            By examining the roles, expectations, behavior and stereotypes of
                          people with and without disabilities, this manual shows how to move
                          from a medical model to a community approach. Using a paradigm for
                          interdependence, personal accounts and frank discussions are woven
                          together with clinical expertise and social theory.
                            Whether you are a clinician, educator, caregiver, family member or
                          advocate, you will find this book engaging, insightful and challenging.
                          Most of all, it will make you rethink your beliefs, attitudes and approach
                          to inclusion of people with disabilities in your community.
