Name: Team Up to Facilitate Functioning (TUFF) Series: Interactive Brochures for Treatment of Postconcussive Symptoms in Returning Veterans with History of Traumatic Brain Injury
Description: The six online TUFF modules address Academic Skills, Cognitive Skills, Managing Headaches, Healthy Sleeping, Stress Management, and Mood Management. Each brochure contains several 'team up' sections designed to encourage clinicians to personalize the administration of each brochure and practice new skills through collaboration with the Veteran. A pre- and post-symptom assessment is paired with each interactive brochure, allowing clinicians to determine the effectiveness of the intervention. Each module includes an evidence-based interactive brochure with references for additional community resources, pre- and post-intervention symptom assessment, and a user manual.
