Response to Goal Management Training in Veterans with blast-related mild traumatic brain injury

J. Kay Waid-Ebbs, PhD, BCBA-D, et al.

Treatment of concussions (mild traumatic brain injuries) as a result of exposure to blast injury is of significant importance to the Veterans who have served in the recent wars. Over 287,861 servicemembers have been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury. An estimated 44% have persistent symptoms that interfere with thinking skills. Effective interventions for thinking skills are needed for Veterans. Goal Management Training is a treatment that has shown improvement in a small number of Veterans with blast-related mild traumatic brain injury. Further research is needed to support these results.
