The Self after Brain Injury
- The self is a complex construction that encompasses the inter-related concepts of self-awareness, self-concept, self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-identity.
- After brain injury, individuals often experience alterations in how they perceive their own abilities and their broader sense of identity. These changes have major implications for engagement in rehabilitation and health and participation outcomes.
- This special issue will bring together international and inter-disciplinary perspectives on the topic of ‘self’ after brain injury.
- The intent of this issue is to be a catalyst for research, progress knowledge, and inform innovations in clinical practice as relevant to understanding and managing the impact of brain injury on the self.
- Although the primary focus is on traumatic brain injury, scholarly articles on diverse brain injury populations may be considered
- Articles that report research conducted on individuals with brain injury across the lifespan and in hospital and community-based settings are encouraged.
- Manuscripts involving, but not limited to, conceptual reviews, systematic reviews, single-case experimental studies, clinical trials and qualitative and quantitative studies are welcome and will undergo peer review.
