Title: Stepping Stones Triple P plus an acceptance and commitment therapy adjunct for parents of children with traumatic brain injury: A randomised controlled trial.
Abstract: The consequences of paediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) are far reaching, with behavioural, emotional, academic, and social problems being common sequelae. TBI also impacts significantly on the entire family system, with parents often experiencing high levels of distress, and increased burden of care. Despite this, limited research has been conducted into effective programs for parents of children who have sustained a brain injury.
This project therefore has 3 aims:
This talk will discuss the background to the project, preliminary findings from a systematic review of family interventions for TBI, preliminary findings from the focus groups, and the proposed RCT for which recruitment has begun.
