Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)  can impact an individual in many different ways, ranging in severity greatly. TBI can also impact families of the individual who suffers the injury.

Dr. Knock will give an overview of Traumatic Brain Injury and discuss the following in relation to TBI:  

  • Families relationships/dynamics
