Due to the multidimensional nature of symptom complaints within the acquired brain injury (ABI) population, emotional and behavioral profiles obtained from using comprehensive validated measures often yield more relevant information than tools that assess for symptoms of a single diagnostic disorder. The current study used the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) to detect emotional and behavioral profiles in a sample of 440 adult ABI patients. Using a rigorous three-step cluster analytic… 
Profile analyses of the Personality Assessment Inventory following military-related traumatic brain injury.

The relationship between coping styles and affective/behavioural symptoms among individuals with an acquired brain injury

Simulation of Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms on the Personality Assessment Inventory
TLDR
The PAI overreporting scales were indeed sensitive to the simulation of TBI symptoms in this analogue design, but were less sensitive than the feigning of a broad range of cognitive, somatic, and emotional symptoms often associated with TBI.
Symptoms at 2 Months after Mild TBI: are they Related to Brain Injury? The Results of a Cluster Analysis
TLDR
Subgroups of patients with mild TBI could be identified according to their symptom profile using cluster analysis, and patients with minor symptoms had a reduced risk for a positive finding on CT or MRI, whereas the high symptom level group struggled to return to work and demonstrated high levels of anxiety, depression and disability.

The inter-relationship between acquired brain injury, substance use and homelessness; the impact of adverse childhood experiences: an interpretative phenomenological analysis study
TLDR
Healthcare professionals need to engage with children, their families, and adults, who have been exposed to adverse childhood experiences and should employ routine screening tools for brain injury to ensure their presence is factored into developing appropriate models of intervention.
Life after Adolescent and Adult Moderate and Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: Self-Reported Executive, Emotional, and Behavioural Function 2–5 Years after Injury

Subtypes of Emotional and Behavioural Sequelae in Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Patterns of emotional and behavioural sequelae in 300 individuals who sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) were examined, finding members of the Externalized subtype were significantly younger in age than those in the other five subtypes, and more likely to be single than Those in the Internalized sub type.

TLDR
Many patients with brain injury are at great risk for developing depressive disorders, and the present investigation used standardized diagnostic criteria and a large sample to identify the manifestations of depression after TBI.

TLDR
The need for proactive psychiatric assessment and timely interventions in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TIM) is indicated and rates of resolution were similar for individuals regardless of previous psychiatric histories.

TLDR
PAI and MMPI-2 Basic scale profiles were consistent with the paradoxical severity effect; mild injury patients had significantly more elevated scores on four Basic scales (Scales 1, 2, 3, and 7); PAI Clinical scale profiles showed significantly more Elevated scores among mild Injury patients on 2 scales, Somatization and Depression, and more elevated score among moderate-to-severe patients on 1 scales, Antisocial Features and Alcohol Problems.
