Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) may be diagnosed when the symptoms of a concussion are prolonged for more than six weeks. 85% of people who suffer from a concussion will be asymptomatic within two weeks and fully functioning within four. Recovery from PCS, however, can last months to years. In my mind, there are three qualities of Post-Concussion Syndrome that make recovery particularly difficult when compared to other injuries: an unpredictable recovery timeline, the frequent invisibility of injury, and the complexity of our brains.. In order to properly treat Post-Concussion Syndrome, we must consider the biological, psychological, and social impacts concussions often have on individuals.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Psychoeducation around concussions
  2. Tools for clinicians who are working with someone suffering from a long-term concussion
  3. Community resources
