The main objectives of this study are to investigate the complex relationships among strengths of character, structurally-imaged estimates of white matter damage in frontal brain regions, psychological resiliency, and outcomes including satisfaction with life and community integration among people with TBI. Participants in the research project will be 6 months to 2 years post injury after having sustained a traumatic brain injury and will receive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), cognitive and psychosocial evaluation. Psychosocial, cognitive, and physical characteristics that may influence these relationships will also be explored.
