Description
Psychologists across specialties are asked to provide care to patients demonstrating mild traumatic brain injury (TBI)/concussion symptoms. Despite growing awareness of concussions, there are many questions about the best management for this complex patient population. This introductory workshop presents the latest research on assessing and managing concussion symptoms in children and adolescents. Upon completion, participants will be able to identify concussion symptoms, assess short- and long-term complications from concussions, follow a step-wise plan to return to learning, and apply evidence-based treatment of concussions using cognitive behavioral principles.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe the basic pathophysiology, epidemiology, and signs/symptoms of concussion.
2. Utilize evidence-based tools for the assessment of acute and protracted concussion symptoms and how to integrate their use into various types of practice.
3. Identify and implement the steps necessary for successfully managing a patient’s return to learning/school postconcussion.
4. Apply cognitive behavioral strategies to clinically manage prolonged postconcussion symptoms and treat comorbid physical and mental health issues that are interfering in final concussion recovery.
