Eleven veterans participated. Treatment was associated with decreased anger expression by the vets and increased social support and occupational activity. Caregivers reported decreased burden and increased empowerment. “An open trial of an adaptation of multifamily group treatment for...veterans with TBI demonstrated significant improvement in anger management and use of social supports among veterans and in burden and empowerment among families, providing a rationale for mounting a randomized clinical trial,” the researchers stated.
