450 Applying Neuroscience to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury*

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a huge silent epidemic within incarcerated populations, underdiagnosed and untreated. TBI leads sufferers to become more emotionally and behaviorally dysregulated and more likely to experience a variety of mental health disorders. This session will explore behavioral health best practices, current neuroscience research, the six TBI diagnostic trajectories, early diagnosis, and actionable treatment options.

Educational Objectives
  • Review the prevalence of TBI in correctional settings and current diagnostic and treatment challenges
  • Explain the current neurologic understanding of the six TBI diagnostic trajectories
  • Discuss how to improve diagnosis of TBI
