Summary
"Neuropsychiatrists Drs. Vani Rao and Sandeep Vaishnavi--experts in helping people heal after head trauma--explain how traumatic brain injury, whether mild, moderate, or severe, affects the brain ... By stressing that symptoms are real and directly related to the trauma, Drs. Rao and Vaishnavi hope to restore dignity to people with traumatic brain injury and encourage them to ask for help. Illustrating problems and solutions through case studies, the authors suggest medications, counseling, and other treatments, and include targeted tips for coping"--Page 4 of cover
