Abstract

Psychological reactions to TBI are complex and variable, being determined by a broad range of factors. These include the nature and severity of the injury, the manner in which it was sustained and whether the injured person can recall the accident, as well as the age, developmental stage, previous psychological and social adjustment of the injured person and family, and events since the injury.
