Abstract

Reduced length of stays for inpatient rehabilitation challenge psychologists to develop new models of psychosocial service. Crisis intervention is a useful model that can be adapted to meet the needs of stroke patients and their families. The authors describe a 1-session intervention, utilizing crisis intervention and psychoeducational and cognitive behavioral techniques with stroke survivors and primary family caregivers in the inpatient rehabilitation setting. A case study illustrates the process and potential benefits of this approach. The intervention is feasible within the confines of the inpatient setting and well tolerated by participants. A controlled trial is necessary to establish the broad efficacy of this intervention.
