Learning Objectives

  • Describe the common differences between the pattern of concussion symptoms and possible comorbid conditions (e.g., anxiety)
  • Discuss recent scientific advancements in concussion management
  • Identify when an interdisciplinary approach to treatment is needed

Description:

This webinar session will be led by Catherine McGill, PsyD, a pediatric neuropsychologist with a particular focus and expertise in working with children, adolescents, and young adults who have experienced a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion. Dr. McGill is pleased to offer a training session for allied health professionals who are likely to encounter and work with individuals who have sustained a concussion. Through interactive lecture, this intermediate training will help clinicians feel empowered to better understand concussion symptom patterns and know when symptoms may suggest something other than concussion may be occurring.
