1. Treatment of Memory - Part 1
It is important that the memory interventions used with patients are evidence-based and that they incorporate principles of learning theory. This chapter will provide an update on the ‘state of the science’ of memory intervention and describe three phases of learning that memory interventions should incorporate.
2. Treatment of Memory - Part 2
Traditionally, memory interventions are described as being of two types: restorative and compensatory. It is important that memory training approaches are informed by multiple patient factors. This chapter will define both types of interventions and identify patient candidacy considerations for each.
3. Treatment of Memory - Part 3
Errorless learning, spaced retrieval, and metacognitive strategy training are three commonly used, evidence-supported techniques used therapeutically to improve memory. This chapter will describe these techniques, patient candidacy for them, and their importance facilitating intervention outcomes.
