The Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society (JINS) recently published a special virtual issue covering mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The issue, titled “Complexities of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder,” synthesizes previously published JINS articles and is of particular relevance to service-members returning from warzones. Dr. Sureyya Dikmen of the University of Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Model System co-edited this issue with Dr. Jennifer Vasterling of the VA Boston Healthcare System.

WJLA, an ABC News affiliate, highlights the Virginia Commonwealth Traumatic Brain Injury Model System’s work on relationships after brain injury
WJLA News, the Washington, DC-based affiliate of ABC News, featured the innovative work of Dr. Jeffrey Kreutzer’s team at the Virginia Commonwealth Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (VCU-TBIMS) on couples’ relationships after brain injury.
The story follows Kurt Olsen and his wife Jennifer Olsen, who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) after a car accident in 2009. The Olsens sought the help of Dr. Jeffery Kreutzer and his team at VCU; Kreutzer’s group offers novel evidence-based counseling methods specifically tailored for couples affected by TBI.
VCU-TBIMS’ work on post-TBI relationships was also featured by The New York Times earlier this year.
