The psychological effects of traumatic brain injury provide a major challenge to rehabilitation services. This text will increase understanding of the nature of these effects and provide practical guidance and illustrative case examples from experienced practitioners about psychological interventions for use in both rehabilitation and adjustment. The book is structured around five areas: psychological services; cognitive rehabilitation; behavioural and emotional interventions; vocational rehabilitation; and family interventions.

The text is aimed primarily at clinical psychologists and other members of the multi–disciplinary brain injury team. It will also be of considerable value to other professionals involved in rehabilitation and care after traumatic brain injury including those in both pre and post–qualification training.
