The previous chapter outlined a theoretical approach to interventive neuropsychology, which does not focus on individual symptoms of brain-damaged patients, but rather on the concretic quality of their personality. We concluded with a statement which defines the goal of the treatment as training the patient to divide his attention between figure and ground in his experiential field, so that not only the figure is processed and coded, but, to a lesser extent, also the ground. The focus of the present chapter is to initially focus on some general and practical considerations and assumptions, from which the herein described treatment or interventive strategies were developed.
