Having gone through the experience of MTBI herself, psychologist Diane Roberts Stoler set out to provide help and information for other MTBI survivors, their families, and their friends. In Coping With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, she and writer Barbara Albers Hill cover every aspect of this sometimes mystifying condition. Using clear, easy-to-understand language, they look at how the brain works and how it can be injured, at the procedures used to diagnose brain injury, and at the different treatments available. They then examine the most common physical, mental, and psychological symptoms of brain injury, explaining why each occurs and what can be done about it, as well as offering practical suggestions for coping with the problem. Also covered are financial, insurance, and family issues; the rehabilitation process; and eventual outcomes. An extensive resource section provides additional guidance and sources of support.
