  2. Describe current efforts to improve family-centered care and detail approaches for understanding family resilience and the long-term consequences of injuries on families.
  3. Using the framework of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) explain the challenges faced by Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veterans as they reintegrate into the community.
  4. Review the specific neuro-psychiatric manifestations of symptom clusters following TBI according the following types of difficulties:
    (1) cognitive dysfunctions
    (2) neurobehavioral disorders
    (3) somatosensory disruptions
    (4) somatic symptoms
    (5) substance dependence
  5. Apply a multi-dimensional approach (such as the bio-psychosocial model) to each symptom cluster so as to delineate/manage the psychological, occupational, and social dysfunctions related to mild to moderate TBI.
