This is the definitive book on brainlash, the result of a whiplash action to the brain that causes it to be bruised or torn within the skull. Written by a doctor who is a brain-injury survivor, Brainlash presents a way of understanding the road ahead for everyone involved in the process of recovery, which can take weeks, months or years. Spouses, family and friends of brainlash patients learn to better understand and cope with their loved one's condition. Doctors, nurses and other health care providers learn more about the experience from the patient's point of view, a blessing to patients who cannot articulate it for themselves. Attorneys representing brain-injured clients get a rundown of short- and long-term effects the injury can have on their clients' lives. It also enlightens health insurance professionals about the condition and informs employers about the options available to keep the brain-injured employee.

Clear, concise and easy to understand, this valuable sourcebook is divided into these useful sections:
-- Lifestyle Changes and Challenges
-- Support Systems and Reentry
-- Talking and Thinking, Fatigue and Energy
-- New Abilities and Skills, including Humor, Power Naps and Journaling
-- The Physical Body
-- The Emotional Body
-- Case Studies.

Like having the most qualified and down-to-earth social worker, doctor and personal-injury lawyer on your side, Brainlash empowers the brain-injured to get the most from their recovery.
