Overview of the issue
If your work setting brings you into contact with people who have experienced either a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or domestic violence, you need to understand how these two problems intersect. Domestic violence is a common cause of brain injury, particularly in women, who constitute the vast majority of victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner.
