IBIA 2017: Repercussions of TBI

  • IBIA 2017: Repercussions of TBI
  • Substance Use, Criminal Behaviour and Psychiatric Symptoms following Childhood Traumatic Brain Injury: Findings from the ALSPAC Cohort
  • Is there a link between traumatic brain injury (TBI) in youth and later risk behavior?
  • TBI is associated with increased risk behaviors.
  • Children with TBI may have an increased risk of substance abuse and criminal and disruptive behavior; age at injury may increase certain risks.
  • Return to Work, Absenteeism, and Presenteeism after Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
  • What is the completeness of return to work (RTW) with a mild TBI?
  • absenteeism and self-reported productivity following mild TBI
  • Underemployment and productivity loss due to residual symptoms were seen even in patients with full RTW. “RTW should be considered a stage of recovery rather than an ‘outcome’ from [mild TBI].”
  • The Role of Maladaptive Emotion Regulation Strategies in UK Military Veterans with Co-Occurring TBI and PTSD
  • Is there an association between traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and maladaptive emotional regulation strategies (MERS)?
  • “TBI severity was positively associated with PTSD scores and this effect operated due to increased TBI severity leading to higher rates of expressed anger which in turn increased PTSD symptoms.”

Research from the International Brain Injury Association’s World Congress examined various consequences of TBI. Studies included a possible link between childhood TBI and later risk behavior, completeness of return to work following mild TBI, and associations between TBI, PTSD, and maladaptive emotion regulation.


It's about time serious consideration is being given to the long-term effects that mild TBI can have, instead of denying its reality.
