Discussion 1: traumatic brain injury-wk7-1 | SOCW 6411 – Social Work in Trauma, Crisis, and Stress With Military Personnel | Walden University


For this week’s Discussion, review the resources and read the article “Soldiers Continue Recovery From ‘Invisible Wounds.’” Examine the short-term and long-term effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI). This article is a starting point for you to begin to gain knowledge about active duty military personnel and veterans experiencing TBI.

Note: If this link is not operational, use the Internet to find a story of an active duty military personnel diagnosed with TBI and analyze the short-term and long-term effects of TBI.

Post (2 to 3 pages) a description of one short-term and one long-term effect of TBI on an active duty military personnel or on a veteran. Explain one long-term societal effect of military personnel and veterans with TBI. Provide one recommendation for services (e.g., advocacy, awareness, or support) that you might make to help active duty military personnel with TBI. Select two articles from the Walden Library to support your response.

Be sure to support your post with specific references to the resources. If you are using additional articles, be sure to provide full APA-formatted citations for your references.
