Guidance on the identification and management of early and late postinjury neuropsychiatric disturbances as well as their psychological and psychosocial consequences.? Identification of special issues relevant to the evaluation and treatment of TBI and postconcussive symptoms among military service members, and Veterans.? Discussion of the ethics and methods of forensic assessment of persons with TBI.? Key Clinical Points that highlight concepts, assessment issues, and clinical management strategies in each chapter.? A wealth of tables and figures to enhance the accessibility and clinical utility of the book, as well as appendices of additional readings and relevant websites for persons and families affected by TBI and the clinicians providing their care.

Impressive breadth and depth of coverage, logical structure, clinically rich detail, and concise presentation make Management of Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury a must-read for every physician, nurse, and mental health practitioner working to improve the lives of persons with TBI.
