Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brain Injury, the final product
of a 2003 conference that assembled national experts on traumatic brain
injury (TBI) rehabilitation, was written to “bring into one volume a
concise and authoritative account of what is currently known in the field
of TBI rehabilitation.” It is intended for TBI clinicians and
researchers including neuropsychologists, physiatrists, neurologists,
neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, and rehabilitation therapists. The volume is
impressive for the number of chapter authors who are nationally recognized
experts on various aspects of TBI rehabilitation (e.g., Drs. Prigatano,
Malec, Corrigan, Levin, Boake, Diller, Sohlberg, and Cicerone), as well as
the broad and inclusive range of topics covered.
