An introduction to coping with brain injury

King, Nigel S. (Nigel Stephen), 1966-2023
Books, Manuscripts
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) usually refers to people who have suffered a head injury or stroke but also includes those who have had brain tumours, an anoxic injury (where the brain has been starved of oxygen) or brain illnesses like encephalitis and meningitis. After an ABI, the brain undergoes a very slow healing process before improvements slow down and eventually plateau. This is different to other forms of brain conditions where the journey is more of a deteriorating one over time. ABI is commonly called 'a hidden disability' as it can easily be missed or misunderstood by others. As the issues are often hidden, complicated and affect patients and families alike, this book can act as a roadmap to help you and your loved ones navigate through the complex and often unexpected challenges that can arise following a brain injury.
