463 Incarcerated Men With Traumatic Brain Injuries: Findings From an Organizational Change Project*

TBI can affect decision-making and memory, emotion management, sensitivity to sensory stimuli, and challenges in social skills and is related to drug and alcohol use, depression, anxiety, and anger management. Incarcerated people with TBI may engage in behaviors that make life in prison challenging.

Educational Objectives:

Identify mechanisms for supporting organizational change related to TBI

Describe challenges and possible solutions to screening men for TBI upon entry to prison and while incarcerated
