    Concussion: From the CDC to CTE

    Presented by: Antonietta A. Russo, Ph.D. and special guest Dallas Davis, former football linebacker

    Friday, January 25, 2019
    Registration: 8:30 A.M.
    Workshop:  9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. 

    6.0 CE Hours


    As the Super Bowl once again approaches, it is time to consider what it means to have the Traumatic Brain Injury known commonly as Concussion. While our appreciation of this injury and the potential ramifications have improved, controversy and debate rages on both in and out of the Psychological Community.  Even the rates of concussion reported are variable and concerns range from both over and under reporting.  With an estimated 2.5 million high school athletes reporting concussion in a single year, it is vital to understand how concussions present and the latest models for understanding interventions and recovery.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Review assessment and diagnosis of mTBI/Concussion issues in reporting concussions.
    • Discuss current intervention ideas and challenges.
    • Understand current challenges in identification of sex differences
    • Recognize how brain injury impacts families and other relationships
    • Provide participants with recently released tools and ideas for use in their practices.
    • Continue the discussion and appreciate the controversy surrounding CTE
