The eNACT Clinic

eNACT research project logoThe eNACT Clinic is part of the La Trobe Psychology Clinic and offers high quality, innovative, world-class evidence-based rehabilitation and support for cognitive and emotional difficulties following an acquired brain injury (ABI).

Services

The services offered by the Neurorehabilitation Clinic include:

  • The VaLiANT Group: a program to help you increase your participation in valued activities following ABI.
  • Individual cognitive rehabilitation: individual sessions to assist with memory and other cognitive difficulties (e.g. attention, problem-solving) following an ABI. Services are offered face-to-face or via videoconference (Skype or similar).
  • Individual psychological therapy: individual sessions providing support with depression, anxiety and/or emotional adjustment following an ABI. Services are offered face-to-face or via videoconference (Skype or similar).

Assessment and service approach

All services offered by the eNACT Clinic offer you an individualised, tailored approach to rehabilitation.

We will start by conducting an assessment to help us understand:

  • who you are
  • what issues with cognitive function and/or emotional adjustment you are facing
  • what your goals are for treatment.

We will then design a rehabilitation program targeted to help you work towards your goals. Our rehabilitation programs use practical, effective strategies and techniques that are supported by research evidence. We continuously evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments we offer.
