Multivariate assessment of subjective and objective measures of social and family satisfaction in Veterans with history of traumatic brain injury

Henry J. Orff, PhD, et al.

Reintegration of Veterans into civilian life is a complex process that may depend on multiple factors. Given the sparse research on this important issue, we explored one component of reintegration, social and family functioning, in an attempt to determine which clinical variables might have the greatest effect. Our results have significant implications and further illustrate the effect of psychiatric comorbidities (especially depression) on social and family reintegration in Veterans with a history of traumatic brain injury. Evidence-based treatment of both depression and cognitive dysfunction may therefore improve community reintegration, as well as subjective satisfaction with social and family relationships.
