First Published in 1998, This Book explores Traumatic Brain Injury form the perspectives of long term continuing health and social care revision within the current requirements of community care. Different types of residential care provision and care management processes are evaluated for their suitability, without previous ideological bias for or against one provision above another. The book develops social care practice by promoting a strategy of individualised practice for recoiling residential care provision within the requirement of community care. Its recommendations can be transferred from people with Traumatic Brian Injury to other ‘Out-sider groups’ within the remit of community care. Headway National Head Injuries Association commends this book as a standard reference work. Social workers, nurses, social care managers and workers, occupation therapists, psychotherapists, speech therapists, and lawyers working in compensation cases will find the book useful for practice.
