Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors Often Experience Anger

July 16, 2011 in Articles | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

According to an article in Psychology Today, survivors of traumatic brain injuries often experience anger as a byproduct of their brain injury.  Researchers believe that injuries to the frontal lobe of the brain make it difficult for the injury victim to control their emotional responses to stressors, and, when faced with every day life stressors, brain injury survivors may view the stressor as a threat and respond accordingly.  Research indicates that this reaction can be reduced by identifying potential stressors and taking steps to avoid or eliminate them.
