  1. Evaluation of brain injury related behavioral disturbances in community mental health centers.

    Article - En anglais

    As a result of improved emergency trauma services, more individuals suffering a traumatic brain injury are surviving.

    Unfortunately, most of these survivors suffer chronic neuropsychiatric sequelae related to both the brain damage and the psychosocial impact of the injury on self-esteem, self-image, primary role, and vocational function.

    Current community supports are often inadequate to deal with the complex array of neurologic and psychiatric difficulties.

    This article outlines common features of brain injury, explores the link between these features and the common neuropsychiatric sequelae of brain injury, and suggests some principles helpful in the evaluation of the behaviorally challenged brain injured patient.
