Preinjury mental health diagnoses and substance use are not uncommon in traumatic brain injury survivors. Establishing and maintaining stability with these features and a traumatic brain injury is complex. In this free David Strauss Clinical webinar, Scott Peters will discuss multiple treatment frames of reference that may be helpful with appropriate modifications to effectively serve this challenging population.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the risk for relapse and remission factors for substance use and mental health disorders and relate them to TBI populations
  • Review current recommended interventions for substance use and co-occurring disorders to better understand key concepts in treatment and how they apply to TBI populations
  • Discuss the challenges of behavior change for TBI populations with co-occurring disorders and how to access multiple treatment approaches to address these challenges

 Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
