Webinar “Psychological care of persons with brain disorders" by George P. Prigatano, PhD, Professor Emeritus 

Dr. Prigatano is presently the Emeritus Chairman of Clinical Neuropsychology and Newsome Chair of Neuropsychology at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. He is an internationally recognized expert in neuropsychological rehabilitation. His most recent professional work focuses both on the neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy of adults and children with various brain disorders. He is also a pioneer in developing holistic neuropsychological rehabilitation programs for patients with brain injuries. He is an honorary member of several international organizations and in 1998 served as the President of the National Academy of Neuropsychology within the United States.

The agenda of the webinar is based on Dr. Prigatano’s latest book Clinical neuropsychology and the psychological care of persons with brain disorders (2019). 

The administration of psychological care to persons with brain disorders requires a series of skills that integrate the knowledge of clinical neuropsychology with developmental psychology, psychotherapy, rehabilitation, and the study of the humanities. According to Prigatano, “This integrated approach provides a depth of understanding and a broader perspective that ultimately can improve their psychological care by reducing their psychological suffering and allowing them to engage life as lively as they can” (Prigatano, 2019, Preface).

In the webinar, Dr. Prigatano describes his approach to this complex topic. He reviews some of the defining characteristics of human nature and blends that discussion with an understanding of how the brain normally develops and declines with age. The psychological struggles of people at each
stage of development are further described as different brain disorders occur at different times in development.
