Abstract

Self-awareness deficits can manifest as a consequence of acquired brain injury decreasing the motivation and the adherence to the treatment. We present a multitouch system that promotes the role-playing and the self-assessment strategies and challenges the participants in a competitive context. This paper presents an initial clinical trial to study the effectiveness of the virtual system in the rehabilitation of the self-awareness skills. According the evolution of the participants in the Self-Awareness Deficits Interview and in the Spanish Social Skills Scale, the participants improve the perception of their deficits and disabilities.
