Abstract:
Article describes the Laws of the House of Rehab, a framework that rehabilitation professionals can use to address the psychological and rehabilitation needs of individuals with neurological disabilities. Organized by content areas, the laws encompass practice fundamentals, assessment and history taking, treatment planning, treatment, and communication. The laws can be used to develop ethical principles, guide intervention, promote emotional recovery, train staff, and enhance the benefits of interdisciplinary rehabilitation. While the complete list of laws is included in the appendix, 12 of the most useful laws are discussed in detail.
