Stress and Anxiety Following Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Arlington, VA US
February 12, 2015


 

DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): February 2015
 

Date/Time: February 12, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)
 

Human behavior is a result of the constant interaction between the organism and its environment is a belief of the early 20th century psychologist Clark Hull (Freeman, Moore, & Freeman, 2009). Current research notes when injury or stress occurs, behavior reinforces the optimal biological conditions of survival.

This is just as true today when a service member survives both the stress of injury from a brain insult and the effects of the concussion/TBI when either stress or TBI may be repetitive in highly paced or frequent deployment environments. When TBI occurs on a battlefield, both a TBI and a stress/fear response occur. 

If a 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. Discussion will include a variety of evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies related to stress and anxiety following TBI.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • 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
