Anne Boissel: Brain-injured adolescents

The long-term effects of serious traumatic brain injury in the child or adolescent are often underestimated. The seriousness of a brain injury’s lasting effects, especially cognitive and behavioral ones, will be increased in inverse proportion to the age at the trauma occurred. Using an account of the psychotherapy of an adolescent who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, the author suggests a specific psychotherapy setting for brain-injured adolescents.
