The psychological effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) provide a major challenge to rehabilitation services.

  • Provides practical guidance and illustrative case examples from experienced practitioners.
  • Structured around five main areas: overview of psychological effects and services; cognitive rehabilitation; managing emotional and behavioural problems; vocational rehabilitation; and family impact and interventions.
