Taking the Hits: If You’ve Hit Your Head, You’ve Had a Concussive Brain Injury
What Every Therapist Needs to Understand About Head Impacts and Behaviour
My PhD is concerned with behavioural effects of concussive brain injury. We need a functioning brain to think, act and behave – all mentation is biological. Impact to the head causes traumatic brain injury affecting sensation, perception, motor control – our very cognition and behaviour.
This presentation delivers what therapists need to understand about concussive brain injury and behaviour, and is of particular relevance to those working with mood disorders such as anxiety, anger, anxiety and depression, aggression, PTSD, suicide, and ‘late effects’ such as dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
