Workshop Information:

More than 2.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, and more than 5.3 million people live with the long-term effects of TBI. Brain injury can impact functioning across many domains, including cognitive, behavioral, physical, emotional, occupational, and interpersonal functioning. Psychiatric symptoms are very common in this population, yet mental health providers are often uncomfortable with or not knowledgeable about TBI and its role in these symptoms. This presentation will provide a general overview of TBI, including definition, prevalence, neuropathology, symptoms, and recovery, and highlight important clinical considerations for working with this population as a mental health provider.

This presentation will cover brain injury basics (e.g., definition, prevalence, neuropathology, recovery following TBI), assessment (e.g., clinical interview), and interventions, including concussion management, development of compensatory strategies, and utilization of community resources.
