dc.description.abstractThis study examined the quality and availability of professional supports provided to individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families from the perspective of a national sample of 267 adult siblings. Using a constant comparative approach to text analysis, the authors analyzed what siblings perceived to have been beneficial or in need of improvement with regard to the TBI professional services provided to their injured brother or sister and their family. The siblings’ comments suggested that the system-level response to TBI serving injured people and their families was inadequate, that many professionals lacked the skills and understanding to provide effective services, and that professionals did not provide sufficient information to the people with TBI or their families. However, most siblings endorsed a positive view of at least one of the professional services provided. Clinical, advocacy, and research implications of these findings are discussed.en_US
