Synopsis

Over 325,000 Americans annually suffer mild head trauma from automobile accidents, assaults, falls, sports injuries, and other accidents. Diane Roberts Stoler is a health psychologist who sustained both an acquired (AVM) and two traumatic brain injuries due to an auto accident and brain surgery. From her own experience and extensive research, she has written a practical guide for professionals, families and individuals coping with acquired and traumatic brain injury. Neurological problems can complicate caregiving. The book covers many different aspects of brain trauma, including concussion, stroke and brain tumor.

George A. Zitnay, Ph.D., President of the Brain Injury Association endorses the book as follows:

Very few books about brain injury, if any, are as comprehensive and far-reaching as Dr. Diane Stoler's. Coping With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury answers many questions haunting survivors and family members. I strongly recommend this text as required reading for anyone affiliated with the brain injury community.
