The primary aims of this project are to examine the feasibility and relative efficacy of two models of on-line intervention for families of children with traumatic brain injury: one, a model emphasizing cognitive appraisals and problem solving skills; the other, emphasizing linking families to resources and providing professionally-moderated peer support.

Study summary:

The feasibility of the two interventions will be evaluated by examining family utilization of on-line materials and satisfaction with receiving services this way. Previous studies suggest the longer-term effects of TBI often create significant stress for both child and family and the need for psychological services.


Inclusion Criteria: - Child between 5 and 17 years old who experienced a TBI in the past 12 months
