Overview

Despite the importance of the problem, strikingly little has been written about effective approaches to the treatment of individuals with mild to moderate brain injury. This book is designed for neuropsychologists, counseling and rehabilitation psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals who work with individuals who have sustained brain injuries of mild to moderate severity. It provides a context for understanding and evaluating the common consequences of such injuries and offers both theoretical perspectives and practical suggestions for helping individuals to adjust to and compensate for residual difficulties. Early chapters focus on different domains of cognitive functioning, while later chapters describe clinical approaches to helping clients manage common emotional reactions such as depression, irritability, and anxiety. While the book acknowledges and discusses the controversy about the origins of persistent symptoms following mild brain injures, it does not focus on the controversy. Rather, it adopts a "what works" approach to dealing with individuals who have persistent symptoms and perceptions that contribute to disability and to emotional distress. Many of these individuals benefit significantly from neuropsychological intervention. Case examples throughout the book illustrate the adaptation of cognitive, cognitive-behavioral, and traditional psychotherapeutic approaches to individuals with mild to moderate brain injury. Self-regulation and self-management of both cognitive failures and emotional responses are described as appropriate and effective in this population.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ricardo G. Senno, MD, MS (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a very thorough review of neuropsychological issues faced in the mild traumatic brain injury population. Each chapter is broken down into appropriate issues, which makes it easy to use each individually. Furthermore, each chapter is anchored by a case study to serve as a summary and example. This book as a whole is as a good overview of the neuropsychological issues in the mild traumatic brain injury population.
Purpose: This book is intended to be an integrated guide to dealing with both cognitive and emotional sequelae in patients with mild traumatic brain injury. This condition is complex, multifaceted, underdiagnosed, and under-treated. Therefore this book is very much needed, and should serve to increase awareness of neuropsychological issues in the mild traumatic brain injury population. With this general overview of the neuropsychological issues seen in mild traumatic injury patients, the editors meet their objectives.
Audience: This book is intended for use by rehabilitation professionals including neurologists, psychologists, counselors, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists.
Features: This book is an overview of the cognitive and emotional sequelae following mild traumatic brain injury. The format lends itself to easy flow from chapter to chapter. The use of a case study at the end of each chapter serves to summarize and further illustrate the points of each chapter.
Assessment: There are a number of areas which could be expanded upon, including driving rehabilitation, family issues/family dynamics post injury, alcohol abuse after traumatic brain injury, divorce rate, medical complications, and issues with and the use of pharmaceutical intervention. The last point is very important as medications can affect neuropsychological recovery and treatment. The editors of this book provide a good overview of a very complicated topic. The format makes it easy to read and is appropriate for the intended broad audience.
