Behavioral dyscontrol is arguably the most difficult issue to address when treating a person with brain injury. Contingency management, insight acquisition, and skill building are excellent methods, but these traditional approaches often fail to rehabilitate patients with severe behavioral problems. Are they destined for institutionalization, or is there a treatment that will let them resume their lives as active members of the community?

Neuropsychosocial Intervention: The Practical Treatment of Severe Behavioral Dyscontrol after Acquired Brain Injury describes an innovative, clinically proven methodology based on over 20 years of clinical work with persons with brain injury. Neuropsychosocial treatment is an environmental intervention that focuses on the behavior of the people whom persons with brain injury encounter and the physical environment that they inhabit. It encourages therapists to create an environment for each patient after examining neurological, cognitive, adjustment, and environmental variables.

This book outlines the nature and significance of behavioral dyscontrol, explains aggression, and details the neuropsychosocial treatment approach and the principles on which it is based. Providing numerous case vignettes, it demonstrates that even persons with brain injury who have severe behavioral problems can succeed with amazing results. With dedication and the proven techniques described in Neuropsychosocial Intervention, you too can help them reach their maximum potential.
