1/08  **PODCAST** Positive Behavioral Supports in Traumatic Brain
Injury.  Podcast #14.  Northeast Center for Special Care.  December 2007.  
In this informative interview, Dr. Tom Pomeranz discusses the value and importance of
Positive Behavioral Supports for people with Traumatic Brain Injury who struggle with
behavioral challenges.  Tom shares with the audience that the behavioral challenges with
which many individuals with TBI must cope are commonly a function of their unmet needs.  
Diminished sense of self, frustration, loss, boredom and anger must be recognized and
effectively addressed if we are to provide the person with TBI an improved quality of life.  
The theme of the discussion is “anger is a communication of unmet needs”.
