Fifteen families seeking family counseling after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) were monitored over a two-year period. Findings indicated decreased distress for both individuals with TBI and their caretakers, reduced burdens carried by family members, reduced conflict, and increased family cohesion and adjustment. However, reported anger levels, which initially decreased, rose back to their original levels. (DB)
