Group Therapy for Anger After Brain Injury
The purpose of this study is to examine a new therapy program, referred to as ICAN, which is designed to teach perspective taking to people with brain injury so that they could better understand others’ intentions and feel less angry in response to others’ actions. The ICAN intervention is 6-session group therapy program and participants are expected to actively engage in role playing and other exercises as part of the therapy. The study will examine changes in perspective taking, attributions, and anger and aggression.
