Metacognitive strategies are thought to assist people suffering from brain damage in relearning daily living tasks. The use of self-regulation and mental imagery as metacognitive strategies used in an intervention program is described. The program requires the clients’ active participation. The evidence is gathered from two case reports, four randomized clinical trials, and one meta-analysis paper.
