This pilot study examined the utility of self-discrepancy theory (SDT) in explaining post-traumatic brain injury (TBI) depression and anxiety. The SDT model was expanded to include the discrepancy between the postinjury self and the preinjury self. Study participants were 21 individuals with mild to severe TBI residing in the community, who completed the(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the incidence, comorbidity, and patterns of resolution of DSM-IV mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). DESIGN The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Diagnoses (SCID) was utilized. Diagnoses were determined for three onset points relative to TBI onset: pre-TBI, post-TBI, and(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency and nature of post-TBI personality disorders (PDs) in a community-based sample of individuals with TBI. RESEARCH DESIGN One hundred individuals with TBI were administered a structural clinical interview to determine Axis II psychopathology. METHODS OF PROCEDURES: The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV(More)
INTRODUCTION Pediatric patients undergoing prolonged periods of deep hypothermic circulatory arrest have been found to experience long-term deficits in cognitive function. However, there is limited information of this type in adult patients who are undergoing deep hypothermic circulatory arrest for thoracic aortic repairs. METHODS One hundred forty-nine(More)
This study provided a comprehensive program to treat visual perceptual disturbances associated with right brain damage (RBD). Three types of previously evaluated perceptual remediation were integrated into a sequentially administered remediation program: basic visual scanning, somatosensory awareness and size estimation training, and complex visual(More)
In this study, self-reported symptoms (cognitive, physical, behavioural/affective) from the TIRR Symptom Checklist are compared across six panels: 135 individuals with mild TBI, 275 with moderate/severe TBI, 287 with no disability, 104 with spinal cord injury, 197 who are HIV positive and 107 who had undergone liver transplantation. Participants with TBI(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the preinjury rates of Axis I disorders and the prospective rates within the first 6 years after traumatic brain injury (TBI). DESIGN Cross-sectional, longitudinal, and cross-sequential. SETTING Community-based research and training center. PARTICIPANTS Persons (N=188) who had sustained TBI within 4 years of enrollment into the(More)
At least 1.4 million people die, or receive hospital or emergency care every year in the United States as a result of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many more are treated in other settings or receive no treatment at all. Thus TBI is often unidentified, with subsequent cognitive, behavioral, emotional and physical sequelae that are not linked to the injury.(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of employment on perceived quality of life (QOL), social integration, and home and leisure activities for individuals with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). DESIGN A number of demographic and injury-related variables (age at injury, time since injury, severity of injury, education, gender, preinjury household income,(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the self-reported prevalence of long-term health issues in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) living in the community. DESIGN A structured health interview. For individuals with TBI, the presence of a specific health-related issue with onset post-TBI and currently a problem at the time of the interview was explored. For(More)
