Dr. Manson also provides outpatient psychological treatment for patients participating in the outpatient Neuro Rehabilitation program at Froedtert Hospital. Throughout her work, Dr. Manson utilizes a strengths-based approach to identify and build upon what patients already do well.
In addition to direct patient care, Dr. Manson regularly provides consultation and education for the rehabilitation staff, building their capacity to more fully address patients’ psychosocial needs. An interdisciplinary approach is used whenever possible to address patients’ psychosocial concerns.
