Patients report a wide variety of emotional responses following stroke. Some individuals find the process of adjusting to their changed circumstances extremely difficult, while others cope well. Predicting and understanding patients' adjustment to stroke therefore poses challenges within rehabilitation settings. While research has revealed some of the variables associated with increased emotional distress (i.e., post-stroke depression) after stroke, a general model of post-stroke emotional adjustment has not yet been put forward. This article proposes that the Social Cognitive Transition model provides a sound theoretical basis upon which to build an understanding of post-stroke adjustment. The essential elements of a Social Cognitive Transition Model for Stroke are summarised, and clinical examples are used to discuss this model. The implications for psychological assessment, formulation and treatment are also discussed.
