Création d’un protocole de rééducation de la cognition sociale pour adultes cérébrolésés

Abstract : Studies have shown that social cognition is consistently impaired in acquired brain injuries. This impairment may hinder the capacity of patients to return to their former lifestyle. This study, based on a modular approach of social cognition, aims at designing and testing a protocol for the rehabilitation of the following processes: recognition of the six primary emotions from facial and voice expressions, theory of mind, moral and conventional judgments. With two single case studies, we evidenced the positive effect of the protocol on the trained processes. However, this review has not fully supported the hypothesis of an absence of effect on general cognition or the generalization of the effect of the protocol on others non-trained processes in social cognition. In addition, the material created for this protocol has been easy to implement and tailor to individual needs and has proved its efficiency. The results now call for further studies, including more patients and secondary emotions, over longer training sessions.
