TBI: Diagnosis and Management of Post-traumatic Headache
Date/Time: On Demand, 8-30 September 2014
Headache is one of the most common persisting symptoms after traumatic brain injury (TBI) across all levels of injury severity. Recent research in both civilian and military sample populations has improved the understanding of the prevalence and pathogenesis of the problem after TBI. However, little research has yet to be conducted on treatments for post-traumatic headache. This session will review the current research on post-traumatic headache and how symptoms of headache can assist with diagnosis. Current recommendations for treatment of post-traumatic headache also will be described.
Target Audience: This program will be beneficial to mental health practitioners including psychologists, social workers, counselors, substance abuse professionals, case managers, clinicians and therapists. Any other mental health professionals are invited to attend.
