In this study, people with traumatic brain injury participated in eight sessions of psychoeducational treatment for irritability and anger. They learned about why anger and irritability were common issues after a brain injury and how better to deal with them. Participants reported improvement across all measures and the researchers believe this model is worthy of further study.
