October 6 @ 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

Program Description: After brain injury, the primary focus is often on the physical repercussions. This presentation will emphasize the cognitive, behavioral and emotional symptoms of brain injury, which are sometimes the more difficult symptoms to cope with. Additionally, the neurobiological underpinnings of these symptoms, how they may present in patients with brain injury and how to best respond to and manage these patients will be covered.

About the Presenter:
Lynn Schaefer, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, is Director of Neuropsychology at Nassau University Medical Center. She holds academic appointments as Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Rehabilitation and is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist Trainer with the Brain Injury Association of America. Dr. Schaefer’s clinical and research expertise is in the assessment and remediation of neurobehavioral disorders, such as brain injury and dementia, and in the determination of decision-making capacity.
