Brain Injury RESEARCH
Therapy to Improve Emotional Awareness and Communication
The purpose of this study is to teach participants with traumatic brain injury to develop better emotional self-awareness and ability to describe and communicate their emotions. The treatment is eight 60-90 minute sessions one-on-one with a clinician that will take place twice a week for one month. All subjects will eventually receive treatment. Changes in emotional awareness, emotion regulation, anxiety, depression, anger, and affect will be measured at the end of treatment and a 3 months follow-up. Caregivers will also be asked to report on perceived changes. Patient satisfaction will also be evaluated.
This study is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research.
