Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the factors relating to mood and cognition which influence a person’s ability to participate in rehabilitation after Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). It was hypothesised that impairment in cognition, including specific impairment in executive functioning and depression would be associated with poorer engagement in rehabilitation. Method: Twenty-nine patients undergoing rehabilitation following stroke (89.7%) or TBI (10.3%) participated. Individuals recruited completed the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale as a measure of mood and an executive functioning test battery. Data collection occurred over a two week period as concurrent ratings of participation were gathered from physiotherapists and occupational therapists using the Pittsburgh Rehabilitation Participation Scale. Results: In support of the hypotheses, correlation analysis showed a significant positive correlation between participation in rehabilitation with executive functioning (p < .05) and a significant negative correlation between participation in rehabilitation and low mood (p < .05). No association was found between general cognitive ability, functional disability, time since injury, age, gender and participation.
