about this item

This sensitive book provides a much-needed compilation and description of OT programs for the care of individuals disabled by traumatic brain injury (TBI). Focusing on the disabled individual, the family, and the societal responses to the injured, this comprehensive book covers the spectrum of available services from intensive care to transitional and community living. Both theoretical approaches to the problems of brain injury as well as practical treatment techniques are explored in Occupational Therapy Approaches to Traumatic Brain Injury. The processes of assessment and intervention are vital to the recovery of brain-injured patients and this thorough book devotes two chapters specifically to assessment and several chapters on intervention and family involvement. This useful volume contains information about rehabilitation from ‘coma to community,’as well as numerous other approaches.

The findings and treatment suggestions presented here are applicable to many helping professionals working with TBI patients. Health care practitioners working with brain injured persons and their families in both institutional and community contexts, physical therapists, physicians, nurses, and psychologists and social workers involved with assessment will find this an invaluable addition to their professional references.
