A Family Member's Guide to Coping with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Dr. Timothy Elliott, Ph.D., will discuss ways professionals can work with family caregivers on coping with service members who have traumatic brain injury. Living with a wounded warrior who has had a TBI can be overwhelming to families. Not only are caregivers having to assist with medical appointments, multiple therapy sessions, and maintaining medications for their service member, but they are also having to deal with other aspects specific to TBI patients, for example behavioral changes.  

For professionals working with this unique audience, it is important to assist caregivers though this process and to provide them with basic coping strategies to help them and their warriors succeed in the road to recovery. 

Presenter

Timothy R. Elliott, Ph.D., ABPP, is a Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology in the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University.  He holds a joint faculty appointment with the School of Rural Public Health at the Texas A&M Health Sciences Center. 

He is currently a member of the Defense Health Board’s Neurological/Behavioral Health subcommittee to provide advice on psychological/mental health issues and neurological symptoms or conditions among service members and their families.
