Prediction of Long-Term Family Functioning Based on Pre-Injury Family Environment

Abstract:
The current study will seek to characterize the pre-injury family environment of persons with TBI and to determine if the preinjury family environment can predict family members' response to TBI. Information on emotional distress, family systems functioning, social support, and coping styles in the month prior to injury will be obtained from family members within 2 weeks of admission to inpatient rehabilitation. These variables will be used to predict family adjustment at 1 year, after controlling for demographics and injury-related characteristics
