The 3 Global Elements in Detail
Interpersonal Relationships and Self Awareness
This is arguably the most important of the 3 global elements. If the person is going to be independent to any degree - he must be aware of that he has cognitive deficits. Otherwise he will have to be supervised to some degree in daily life. The highest level of self awareness is developing insight into the reason for the deficits which indicates total understanding of his situation. Before the person develops self awareness he must be able to communication effectively with others, follow instructions, control his emotions and monitor his behavior.
Subcomponents of interpersonal relationships and self awareness include:
initiating communication, orientation to others, phone use, expressing emotion, following commands, reading comprehension, self regulation, error detection and correction, engaging others, setting goals.
