As described on the website:
“In this presentation we will first briefly review the symptomatic presentation of youth with prolonged recovery and identify the demographic, injury-related, and symptomatic risk factors for prolonged recovery. The correlates and sequelae of prolonged recovery will also be reviewed, such as depression, anxiety, attentional and concentration difficulties, sleep problems, headache, and suicidal ideation and behavior. Next, we will describe a current best practice for management of prolonged recovery, deciding which set of symptoms and impairments to target first, and psychosocial and pharmacological approaches to management of prolonged recovery. Finally, we will suggest approaches to parent education, school and athletic management, and screening for behavioral health issues that may prevent development of prolonged recovery and will lead to earlier identification of youth at risk for prolonged recovery.”
There is no cost for this webinar.

Assaults can result in a concussion or TBI. If you receive such an injury, please seek medical assistance. Remember that a concussion can change over a period of several days. So even if you're Ok in the first 24 hours, it might not be the case over the next 48 hours. Symptoms could worsen. For information about what to look for and when to seek medical assistance, see the CDC information about concussion signs, symptoms, and when to seek medical assistance.
