With the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of Service members, civilian contractors, and even reporters have sustained Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) due to Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and other blasts. So what is a TBI exactly and what effects does it have on individuals, their families, and the mental health providers who serve them? Based on content from the Center for Deployment Psychology, as well as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fifth Edition), this training will provide you with an introduction to the mechanisms, signs, symptoms, severity levels, and prevalence and incidence rates of TBI in both civilian and military populations, as well as a brief overview of major or mild neurocognitive disorder (NCD) due to TBI. With a blend of instructive information, along with experiential exercises based on a case study, by the end of this course you will have the tools you need to apply these concepts to the individuals you serve. This course is intended for any mental health provider interested in gaining competency in working with individuals (military or civilian) who have sustained a TBI.
