Predicting Life Satisfaction Following Traumatic Brain Injury

Abstract:
Stepwise multiple regressions were conducted, and a small, but significant, proportion of the variance in life satisfaction was predicted. Individuals who did not have a history of substance abuse and were gainfully employed at follow-up reported higher life satisfaction at 1 and 2 years post-injury. Motor independence was also a significant predictor at one year follow-up, while social integration and the absence of depression were predictors at two year follow-up. Life satisfaction tended to be stable during the two years; marital status and depression predicted what change that did occur
