Coping with Brain Injury
In 1990, Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler's life changed in the blink of an eye when her car was hit head-on at 60 mph. While her outward injuries were minor -- just cuts and bruises -- Dr. Stoler, a health psychologist, found herself struggling with the confusing, life-altering symptoms of a concussion and later post-concussion syndrome (PCS).

Based on her experience, training and research, Dr. Stoler has co-authored Coping With Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, the first reference book to help patients cope with all types of brain trauma... from concussion to stroke to brain tumors. 

Dr. Stoler talks about her book and offers wisdom on symptoms to expect, rehab, self-care and even financial, insurance and family issues.
