A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by an external force. TBI is a form of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Car accidents in Victoria make up a large percentage of TBI injuries. No person with a TBI/ABI is the same. It affects people in different ways. In addition to it majorly impacting the individual, it also affects those around them (i.e., family members). 

Unfortunately, there is no “cure” for ABI/TBI. But there is hope. This person now has to form new neural pathways. Psychology works to assist those suffering from TBI through learning coping skills and improving general emotional well-being. Moreover, evidence indicates that behavioural therapy, CBT and psychoeducation can help improve brain function and symptom relief.
