Excerpt
FOREWORD Rehabilitation following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complicated and challenging process for the person who was injured, the family, and all of the rehabilitation personnel who contribute to the process. In natural disasters and wars, where there may be many people with TBI, the request arises for a comprehensive approach to deal with the multiple disabilities each injured person experiences. Rehabilitation personnel working in developing countries have also requested information about a comprehensive approach for working with people with TBI.
