Rehabilitation psychology is a subspecialty practice within the field of clinical psychology that applies psychological principles and methods to assess and treat individuals with acute or chronic disabilities. A rehabilitation psychologist strives to work closely with an individual with such disabilities, as well as with their family, to maximize recovery and optimal return to prior physical, psychological and social functioning.
