Abstract

Primary objective: Brain injury can result in the loss of previous learnt behaviours that affect an individual's daily functioning. The use of self-regulation helps the individual to relearn the lost behaviours by bringing him/her to self-conscious level through independent and reflective learning derived using a social cognitive perspective. The purpose of this paper is to report on clinical observations made with the use of self-regulation in people with brain injury during the relearning of lost functions. Methods and procedures: Daily tasks were used to assess the relearning ability of the subjects pre- and post-programme. Experimental intervention: One-week self-regulatory training on five selected daily tasks. Main outcomes and results: These provisory observations would suggest that, with specific guidance for people with different needs, such as with impaired cognitive function and depression, self-regulation is effective in enhancing their relearning. Conclusion: Self-regulatory training is effective in enhancing the relearning of lost functions.
