How Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) May Affect Violent Behavior

Posted Mar 17 2013 12:06pm

Interesting and important video:

Causes of violent behavior after TBI: damage to the parts of the brain that inhibit “wild animal” behavior, fatigue, agitation, un-managed anger, and a host of other issues. Concussion can cause it, along with more extreme kinds of brain injury, both traumatic and acquired (such as stroke).

Medication is a possible intervention, and so are a variety of other approaches, including mindfulness training, behavioral modification, and developing additional coping skills.
