Abstract

Persons who suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI) often demonstrate a variety of psychiatric and neuropsychiatric disturbances. Some of those disturbances may be managed by non-pharmacological methods. The methods draw heavily on established principles of psychotherapy and behavioral modification. However, the unique problems imposed by neurocognitive deficits must be factored into any form of non-pharmacological intervention with this patient group. A simple model consolidates information about the important ingredients in the non-pharmacological management of psychiatric disturbances in TBI patients.
