A guide to the psychological, social, behavioural and emotional problems created by head injury. It is written in a non-technical, jargon-free style and addresses the medical problems, rehabilitation and adjustment of individuals and families to the realities of life after a head injury. The author's presentation of essential factual information and research enables the reader to gain a greater understanding of head injury, and a number of case histories offer valuable insights into the problem. It offers practical advice to home carers and family members who have to look after a head injury victim; also for the patients themselves, therapists and medical staff. Topics covered include: understanding coma; rehabilitation and recovery; cognitive re-training; managing emotional and behavioural problems; and returning to work and family life.
