Brain Injury Rewiring for Loved Ones by Carolyn E. Dolen, MA helps the loved one understand what happens to an injured brain, and gives information to lead their survivor through their recovery.
Traumatic brain injury causes damage to the connections in many parts of the brain besides the focal point of the injury. It's not enough to heal medically. Brain Injury Rewiring for Loved Ones has extensive information about what happens in the brain when it is injured, and goes on to describe the medical care required during the initial stages of recovery. After that, the book makes it clear how loved ones can continue to help the survivor heal spiritually, emotionally, cognitively, physically, socially, and vocationally through traditional and complementary medicine and good nutrition. Brain Injury Rewiring for Loved Ones is one of two well-received books designed to help survivors of brain injuries. The companion book, Brain Injury Rewiring for Survivors, describes a complementary set of options a survivor has for recovery.
