This chapter suggests some measures that can be taken to rehabilitate the impaired agentic self in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. It suggests certain tasks to be designed for PD patients suffering from impaired agentic self, which can increase awareness about the self. Investigations reveal that the tasks which are composed of increased practical and social activities increase awareness about the self and help in rehabilitating the agentic self. These patients can be enrolled in the Standard Social Skills Rehabilitation (SSSRT) program to fulfil these objectives. SSSRT is composed of extensive training programs designed to teach regular skills, compliance with medication timetables, and increased social and occupational activities.
