Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


The authors report the evaluation of a metacomponential training program for clients with brain injury, using two key measures, the Metacomponential Interview, and the Social-Problem-Solving Video Measure. Both measures allowed for identification of the metacomponents that were enhanced in association with the metacomponential training. The Metacomponential Interview measure yielded positive findings for the Representation metacomponent and the overall correctness score. The more far transfer real-life Social-Problem-Solving Video Measure yielded for the Planning subtest a positive advantage to the experimental group, but less clear findings in relation to the Representation subtest. Further evidence was obtained by singlesubject trend analysis.
