Working with families whose military member has experienced a mild or moderate traumatic brain injury (mTBI) presents unique challenges to the family therapist. Family members are concerned that “this isn’t the same person who left for deployment”. Therapists are often perplexed due to the intermittent and inconsistent behavioral and cognitive manifestations of an mTBI. This session explores the intersection of mTBI and PTSD and potential impacts on family interactions. It includes a fast-paced experiential activity allowing participants to gain insights from the brain injured perspective and offers proposed family interventions.
