Stress and Anxiety Following Traumatic Brain Injury --Webinar

The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and TBI (DCoE) will host a webinar, Stress and Anxiety Following TBI, as part of its monthly webinar series on  Feb. 12, 2015 at  1:00-2:30 p.m. EST

According to the sponsors, at the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the complex interaction between the effects of stress and anxiety during the recovery course of TBI.
  • Examine and select strategies for treating co-morbid symptoms with the core symptoms of TBI.
  • Discuss the integration of evidence-based practices into the assessment of stress and anxiety following TBI.

Here is the course description:

"Current research notes when injury or stress occurs, behavior reinforces the optimal biological conditions of survival. Similarly, when a brain injury occurs on the battlefield, the injured service member may experience both a TBI and a stress or fear response. If the threat or anxiety becomes overwhelming, the service member may revert to protective modes, including exacerbation of posttraumatic stress disorder, family conflict, alcohol or substance abuse, or other maladaptive reactions. The discussion will include a variety of evidence-based assessments and treatment strategies related to stress and anxiety following TBI."
