Fundamentals of Traumatic Brain Injury

 

What is a TBI and what effects does it have on individuals, their families, and the behavioral healthcare providers who serve them? Following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of Service members, civilian contractors, and even reporters sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI) due to Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and other blasts. This course is intended for any behavioral healthcare provider interested in gaining competency in working with Military-connected individuals who have sustained a TBI. It covers information regarding the mechanisms, warning signs, severity levels, and best practices for working with people who have sustained a TBI. A blend of instructive information and interactive vignettes provide you the tools you need to apply concepts you learn.
