Overview

James Brady, who sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during the assassination attempt on President Reagan, notes in the forward that TBI is a major yet neglected public problem in the US. In this sequel to Neuropsychiatry of Traumatic Brain Injury (1994), Dr. Silver (psychiatry, New York U. School of Medicine) and North American contributors to 40 chapters comprehensively treat the neuropsychological and psychosocial challenges facing patients and their healthcare providers in rehabilitation. Discussions reflect advances in the field relating to epidemiology, neuropathology, neuropsychiatric disorders and symptomatologies, special populations, treatment, and prevention. New chapters address systems of care, social issues, and alternative therapies. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
