Aphasia and other language difficulties are very common symptoms of moderate to severe brain injury. This book explains common types of aphasia, such as Broca’s Aphasia, Wernicke’s Aphasia, Conduction Aphasia, and Global Aphasia, plus language disorders like Dyslexia and Anomia in under 300 pages.
Covers a wide range of topics in under 300 pages. Focuses heavily on the psychological and behavioral aspects of TBI, such as anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and sexual functioning.
Brain Injury Medicine is definitive, yet lengthy and somewhat complicated book. It focuses more on moderate/severe traumatic brain injuries with several additional chapters on mild traumatic brain injury and post-concussion syndrome.
Part 1 of the excellent Brain Injury Rewiring series intended for the family of the person with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This book helps family adjust and cope with this major medical event, to better understand the nature and symptoms of TBI, and suggests family activities (based on current research) that can facilitate a faster and more complete recovery from the TBI. Includes a brief overview of neurofeedback for TBI.
Part 2 of the excellent Brain Injury Rewiring series intended for the survivor (patient) of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This book helps the survivor adjust and cope with this major medical event, to better understand the nature and symptoms of TBI, and suggests activities (based on current research) that can facilitate a faster and more complete recovery. Includes a short overview of neurofeedback for TBI. Also include excellent information on TBI and substance abuse.
Filed under this section because of its coverage of mTBI, but also includes chapters on chronic pain and PTSD. As the title suggests, the book focuses on the presentation of evidence about psychological injury to a court.
An excellent, state of the art overview of mild traumatic brain injury and post-concussion syndrome presented in only 200 pages. A BMED Report book review is here.
Another excellent book from Gerald Young with coverage of presenting mTBI, chronic pain, and PTSD to a court.
A fantastic evidence-based book similar to a treatment manual. Extensively details therapeutic activities designed to retrain cognition after a serious head injury or trauma. Covers most aspects of cognition, such as working memory, problem solving, attention/concentration, organization, and comprehension, as well as provides an overview of theoretical models of cognitive rehab. There is also a brief mention of neurofeedback and a chapter on psychotherapy.
One of my favorite books on traumatic brain injury (TBI). Provides an extensive overview of cognitive, behavioral, and emotional components of TBI and its treatments with clearly written and succinct chapters. Highly recommended.
An excellent book that details assessment of TBI from a neuropsychological and forensic perspective. Includes chapters on structural imaging and behavioral, neurobehavioral, neuropsychiatric, and neurocognitive assessment of TBI.
A comprehensive and fairly technical look at traumatic brain injury with an emphasis on rehabilitative treatment and case management. Sections include medical, allied health, and case management themes with several chapters on cognitive and behavioral (applied behavior analysis) rehabilitation.
