ObjectivesTo examine the interrelationships between metacognitive skills and measures of emotional status and executive function following acquired brain injury (ABI), and examine their relative importance to psychosocial outcomes. DesignA cross-sectional multicentre study employing correlational and multiple regression analyses. ParticipantsSixty-seven adults with ABI living in the community, on average 4.4 years (SD = 4.7) postinjury. MeasuresSydney Psychosocial Reintegration Scale, Self… 
Awareness typologies, long-term emotional adjustment and psychosocial outcomes following acquired brain injury
TLDR
An overall comparison of outcomes indicated that the poor self-awareness and high symptom reporting typologies experienced poorer outcomes than the high defensiveness and good self- awareness typologies.
Relation of Executive Functioning and Affect to Psychosocial Outcome After Traumatic Brain Injury
The present study examined the interrelationships between affect and executive functioning and concurrently measured community integration and employability outcomes following traumatic brain injury
Assessment of Emotion Processing Skills in Acquired Brain Injury Using an Ability-Based Test of Emotional Intelligence
TLDR
The findings suggest that the MSCEIT V2.0 is sensitive to emotion processing deficits after moderate to severe ABI, and can yield valid and reliable scores in an ABI sample, and support a domain-based, 3-factor approach for characterizing emotion-related abilities in brain-injured individuals.
Self-awareness following acquired brain injury: measurement and relationship to executive functioning
Impaired self-awareness (ISA) is common following acquired brain injury (ABI) and is related to functional outcome variables. This study examines two questionnaires currently used in clinical and
WHEN LIFE TURNS UPSIDE DOWN : A STUDY OF SELF-AWARENESS OF DEFICITS FOLLOWING ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY
TLDR
A considerable amount of empirical support was found for a positive relationship between improved awareness and employability, although this was less consistent for depressive symptoms and psychosocial and emotional stability.
Domain-specific deficits in self-awareness and relationship to psychosocial outcomes after severe traumatic brain injury
TLDR
The findings highlight the potential benefits of targeting self-awareness related to difficulties with ADLs in the rehabilitation of people with severe TBI and provide only limited support for domain-specific deficits in self- awareness after severe TBO.
The Impact of Psychological Interventions on Mood and Coping Following Moderate to Severe Acquired Brain Injury in Adults
brain injury (ABI) can result in mood disturbances that significantly impact on psychological adjustment follow - ing ABI. Anxiety and depression are commonly reported and are associated with
Motivational Interviewing to promote self-awareness and engagement in rehabilitation following acquired brain injury: A conceptual review
TLDR
A dynamic motivational model of engagement is presented, identifying MI's potential contribution in three key areas: to set the stage for therapeutic alliance and case formulation; to facilitate acceptance of deficits and realistic goal-setting; and to promote constructive engagement in the range of clinical interventions that comprise a holistic neurorehabilitation programme.
Executive Functioning and Adaptive Living Skills after Acquired Brain Injury
TLDR
Data suggest that individuals with ABI who performed in the higher end of the low-average range or higher on measures of executive functioning tend to require little or no assistance to be independent with transportation, money management, living without support, and employment, and results suggest that Individuals with less executive dysfunction are likely to have greater overall community participation.

Investigation of psychological and neuropsychological factors associated with clinical outcome following a group rehabilitation programme
TLDR
Results indicated that individuals with impaired executive functioning were most likely to be classified as Clinically Improved on measures of awareness, strategy behaviour and psychosocial functioning after a group intervention for individuals with acquired brain injury.

This paper presents a conceptual model describing the relationships between quality of life outcomes following traumatic brain injury (TBI), coping patterns, and beliefs regarding self-efficacy to
Self-awareness after traumatic brain injury: a comparison of measures and their relationship to executive functions.
TLDR
Evaluation of awareness by the Dysexecutive (DEX) Questionnaire self-other rating scale with the Self-Awareness of Deficits Interview (SADI) indicated significant, albeit marginal relationships between the two measures, and better correlation of the SADI with measures of frontal lobe functioning.
Development and Standardization of the Self-Regulation Skills Interview (SRSI): A New Clinical Assessment Tool for Acquired Brain Injury
TLDR
The significant relationship observed between the SRSI factors and measures of neuropsychological functioning confirmed the concurrent validity of the scale and supports the value of the S RSI for post-acute assessment.
The investigation of factors underlying deficits in self-awareness and self-regulation
TLDR
A theoretical model suggests that a contribution of both psychological and neuropsychological factors underlie deficits in self-awareness and self-regulation and demonstrated that the relative contribution of these variables varies according to different levels of self- Awareness and Self-regulation.
Cluster Analysis of Self-Awareness Levels in Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury and Relationship to Outcome
TLDR
Rehabilitation timing and approach may need to be tailored to match the Individual's level of self-awareness, motivation, and emotional distress.
Psychosocial adjustment after traumatic brain injury: what are the important variables?
TLDR
Severity of injury and impairments, along with chronicity and level of self-esteem were significant predictors of psychosocial adjustment, and the variable measuring behavioural regulation of abilities was the most significant within the neuropsychological domain.
Measuring psychosocial recovery after traumatic brain injury: psychometric properties of a new scale.
TLDR
The results suggest that the SPRS has sound psychometric properties, being a reliable, stable, sensitive, and valid instrument that is potentially useful in both clinical and research settings.
The Behavioural Assessment of the Dysexecutive Syndrome (BADS): Ecological, Concurrent and Construct Validity
TLDR
The present study examines the validity of the Behavioural Assessment of the Dysexecutive Syndrome, along with six other commonly used tests of executive ability, in two groups of participants with either neurological disorder or without brain damage.
Self-awareness of deficits in adults with traumatic brain injury: how best to measure?
TLDR
An approach which makes use of multiple measures to evaluate self-awareness of deficits is recommended, and an interviewer-rated semi-structured interview is proposed (the Self-Awareness of Deficits Interview).
