Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur at any age. Someone in the United States sustains a TBI approximately every 23 seconds and more than 25% of occupational therapists currently report working with clients with TBI. TBI’s interrelated physical, cognitive, and psychiatric and emotional effects can influence a client’s capacities, activities, relationships, and roles for months and years after the injury.
Section I of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Interventions to Support Occupational Performance provides the core concepts and theoretical foundations that inform occupational therapy across the continuum of care for people with TBI. Section II provides detailed discussions of occupational therapy assessment and intervention at each phase of the recovery, rehabilitation, and community and social reintegration continuum. Features include Points to Ponder, a glossary, and a case study in which a client is followed through the various stages of recovery and rehabilitation, a glossary, and subject and citation indexes.
