Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to review and summarise a small but growing body of literature demonstrating that by embedding intervention within a family context offers the greatest promise of success in working with families caring for a child with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Design/methodology/approach: The approach takes the form of a literature review. Findings: The current family-centred evidence-based research indicates the potential benefits for the delivery of family focused interventions following childhood TBI. Originality/value: The paper adds to the paediatric TBI literature as being of the few papers to incorporate a number of novel family-centred behavioural interventions into the one review paper.
