Robert L. Karol, Ph.D., ABPP-RP, CBIST has written this book as a step by step guide to writing plans that successfully treat behavioral issues after acquired brain injury. It guides the professional with a series of worksheets that span three functions:  detailing and conceptualizing the observed behavior;  understanding the causes of the behavior; and  writing behavior plans that will change the behavior. The focus is on the development of applied, real (not theory) plans with an expressed goal for each person with a brain injury having a workable, concrete intervention plan.
If anyone ever had a reason not to laugh, author Bill Jarvis would be first in line. While a college professor at Taylor University in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Dr. Jarvis was involved in a serious car collision. Diagnosed with a severe TBI and multiple fractures, he was in a coma for five weeks, followed by a hospital stay of 1 1/2 years. Bill picked up the pieces and has worked fervently to make his new life as rewarding and fullfilled as he possibly could - and he’s done quite well, considering what he’s been through.
After all of this, Bill has held onto one of his primary (and most critically important) qualities...his sense of humor! In his new book, Brain Injury Isn’t Funny, Bill takes a light-hearted approach to a serious subject, and lifts hopes (and eyebrows) for all who read it – whether they’re a TBI survivor or not.
