"Behaviour problems following brain injury can be extremely distressing for families and carers as they cause upheaval, anger, shame and embarrassment. They are usually more handicapping than physical problems because those suffering from them are likely to be excluded from society through their unacceptable behaviour.

Unlike other difficulties arising from brain injury, behaviour problems may get worse instead of better over time as disruptive actions may be reinforced inadvertently by others in the environment.

This book is a most welcome addition to the literature dealing with the consequences of brain injury. It is written in a straightforward, direct style, using practical examples familiar to most of us working in rehabilitation.

Both families and professionals will find the book very informative and useful."
