Effects of brain injury on everyday life

Behavioural complications of brain injury: 

Behavioural impacts of brain injuries can vary. They can cause exaggerations of an individual’s personality, or people can act completely out of character. Behavioural impacts of brain injuries can lead to:

  • Disinhibition: which is the loss of control over behaviour, making the individual act inappropriately socially.
  • Impulsiveness: during which individuals act without thinking.
  • Obsessive behaviour: such as irritability or aggression.
  • Apathy and loss of initiative: making them passive and unresponsive.
  • Egocentricity: leading to the individual being self-centred.

Emotional effects of brain injury:

Brain injuries can lead to a lot of trauma and emotional distress. Unsurprisingly, individuals will feel frightened of the outcome of the injury itself. Brain damage can also lead to, personality changes, mood swings, anxiety, frustration and anger and PTSD.

Communication problems:

There are four main categories of effects of brain damage, any of those can cause communication problems:

  • Physical: affecting how the body works
  • Cognitive: affecting how the person thinks.
  • Emotional: affecting how the person feels.
  • Behavioural: affecting how a person act.

Communication issues can be long or short-term, depending on the severity of the injuries. Long-term problems are ones that individuals may have to learn to live with and adapt to their lives. Short-term problems can be just as traumatising.
