Impulsivity and brain injury rehabilitation
Impulsivity is a common sequela of brain injury and patients often have significant difficulties in regulating their urges and impulses, resulting in debilitating social and occupational functioning. Impulsiveness is a multifaceted construct with emotional, cognitive, and behavioural components and there is no consensual definition or measure to assess this construct. This presentation will discuss impulsivity in a broader context and its association with brain injury along with some psychological interventions.
