Overview, Limitations, and Directions
There is little doubt that individuals with brain injuries constitute a significant segment of our health care population. Of growing concern is the percentage of these patients who are chronic and unresponsive to rehabilitative efforts. Hence, little question should exist as to the importance of addressing the concerns of this population. Traditionally, behavioral or psychological issues have almost always been considered nonexistent or unimportant in addressing brain injury. Fortunately, this erroneous and incomplete approach has evolved to include behavior and, thus, clinical neuropsychology (Puente, 1989).
