The purpose of this paper is to review and summarise a small but growing body of literature demonstrating that by embedding intervention within a family context offers the greatest promise of success in working with families caring for a child with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The approach takes the form of a literature review.
The current family-centred evidence-based research indicates the potential benefits for the delivery of family focused interventions following childhood TBI.
The paper adds to the paediatric TBI literature as being of the few papers to incorporate a number of novel family-centred behavioural interventions into the one review paper.
