Traumatic Brain Injury and Battering

The severity of physical violence on women who are battered experience is well-known, yet until recently awareness of the connection between traumatic brain injury (TBI) and battering has commonly been lacking within the advocacy, law enforcement and even the medical fields. This has resulted in misdiagnosis, neglect and revictimization of women who have been battered and suffer from TBI. The Traumatic Brain Injury and Battering booklet provides a survivor-centered overview of what TBI is and its impacts, how to screen for TBI, and information and advocacy for advocates working with survivors with TBI.
