I run a substance abuse support group and I suspect one of the members in the group may have experienced a brain injury at one time. His behavior is often inappropriate and he has trouble remembering what’s been said or following along with the conversation. I’m afraid to ask him directly because he gets angry easily. Any suggestions?
