"This unique and fascinating book portrays rehabilitation at its best: as a partnership between the therapist and the participant. It embodies and illustrates the mutual respect, empathy and goal orientation that characterises an effective therapeutic alliance. Reading this book should give both new and seasoned therapists a clear sense of what therapeutic engagement really means, and individuals with brain injury renewed hope that life can continue to improve after brain injury." - James F. Malec, Indiana University, USA
