Behavioral Modification Services for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Survivors
Sometimes survivors of traumatic brain injury (TBI) experience disruptive behaviors as a result of their injury, such as aggression, lack of inhibition and difficulty relating to others. Those disruptive behaviors can negatively impact their relationships, their ability to participate in everyday activities and their ability to achieve goals. While a complete reversal of disruptive behaviors is not always possible after a TBI, behavioral modification can help reduce the severity and have a tremendous impact on restoring the quality of life for TBI survivors and their families.
Behavioral Modification Resource for Physicians
As a physiatrist or another physician working closely with traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors, you often ask how patients are doing at home, work, and/or school. Of course, there are times when patients or family members inform you that behavioral issues are having a negative impact in those areas. Sometimes you may witness behavior issues during patient appointments that are impeding the patient’s functional recovery and hindering your ability to provide the most effective treatment.
Behavioral Modification Resource for Case Managers
Many times case managers are present at physician appointment for their traumatic brain injury (TBI) clients. During those appointments, it may become obvious to the physician that the patient could benefit from behavioral modification sessions. The physician could then make that recommendation to the family members and/or the case manager.
Behavioral Modification Resource for Insurance Professionals
Insurance professionals are tasked with making sure clients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting from auto accidents have their medical needs met financially within the parameters of the insurance policy. Doing so often involves a lengthy process that involves coordination with patients, family members and health professionals. And when a TBI client is experiencing behavioral issues that are negatively impacting their quality of life and recovery efforts, it can take much longer.
