Based on the dynamic interactional model, the multicontext approach is a strategy based intervention that uses a metacognitive framework first described as an alternative to traditional remedial or deficit specific approaches to improving performance post brain injury.  This course will introduce and discuss three elements of  strategy training intervention:  1) the use of a self-monitoring skills during tasks to recognize performance errors; 2)  the use of guided questioning, to support self-discovery strategies and problem solving to compensate for cognitive performance errors; and 3) the use of effective strategies to improve performance with social cognitive activities. As you will learn, all of these interventions are promoting the use of a global or task specific strategies, or a combination of the two to help people improve their occupational performance with cognitively demanding activities.
