Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: A Guide to Living with the Challenges Associated with Post Concussion Syndrome and Brain Trauma.

Authors: Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler, Ed.D., & Barbara Albers Hill Published by: Avery a member of Penguin Group, Inc, NY, USA

A comprehensive guide for improving memory, focus, and quality of life in the aftermath of a concussion.

Every thirteen seconds, a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury happens somewhere in the world, whether it’s from an automobile accident assault, fall, blast injury, or sports collision. Unfortunately, many of those affected will suffer post concussion syndrome (PCS), which consists of chronic fatigue, headaches, depression, memory issues, sleep problems, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that can last for years. In Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler, a neuropsychologist, practicing board-certified health psychologist, practicing board-certified sports psychologist, and multiple-concussion survivor herself, sets out to cover every aspect of this often mystifying condition. Using clear, easy-to-understand language, Dr. Stoler and Barbara Albers Hill explain the most common physical, mental, and psychological symptoms of brain injury and offer practical suggestions for dealing with each problem. Complete with traditional, complementary, and alternative treatment options, suggestions for overcoming obstacles, and advice on financial matters, Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury is a lifeline for patients, families, and other caregivers.
