Research suggests that TBI can present unique and significant management challenges for mental health, correctional, and legal professionals. These obstacles are often exacerbated when individuals with TBI are not accurately identified and responsively treated. This presentation will provide information about the deficits commonly caused by TBI and will include the benefits of routine screening for TBI in criminal justice and forensic settings. Specifically, Mr. Brown will focus on how TBI may impact confabulation, competency, diminished capacity, disposition/sentencing, false confessions, sexually inappropriate behaviors, suggestibility, trial rights deficits, and the likelihood of victimization during incarceration. Relevant research findings and case law will be presented throughout the webinar.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
