Description

Although millions people of people are affected each year by brain injuries, what it is like to live with these injuries is often misunderstood. Laura Lorenz delves into the experience of acquired brain injury (ABI) survivors to reveal how they make sense of their changed circumstances - and how social policies and medical expectations can enhance, or detract from, their quality of life. As she traces individual journeys on the road from diagnosis through rehabilitation, Lorenz evokes the reality of living with ABI. She also tackles the systemic problems undercutting the quality of current medical and social support. Moving beyond ABI, her work encourages a fresh approach to the patient-provider relationship for people with a wide range of disabilities.show more

Review quote

"Incredibly important.... a must-read for people who care about brain injury. Lorenz provides a genuinely fresh way of allowing survivors to provide their own perspectives on an unexpected life-changing experience. This innovative and touching book will change the way that we think about - and respond to - the experience of brain injury survivors." - Mark Sherry, University of Toledo"show more
