SCA November 2017 Meeting

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Brett Parmenter, PhD

November 17, 2017

The military has a higher rate of traumatic brain injury (TBI) than civilians and this rate is even higher during times of war. This presentation will focus on TBI in military personnel and why the rate of TBI is higher in this population. Specifically, there will be discussion on what a TBI is, how it is diagnosed, and what is expected for recovery. Special attention will be spent on mild TBI as the majority of injuries are of this severity as well as common comorbid conditions, such as PTSD.


Dr. Parmenter earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Kansas after completing her predoctoral internship at Yale University School of Medicine. She then completed a two year fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. She is board certified in Clinical Neuropsychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology/American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology and is on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology Foundation. She is a staff neuropsychologist at the VA Puget Sound Healthcare System, American Lake Division and is a Courtesy Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
