The role of concussion on mood and behavior is emerging as an important clinical variable in assessing and treating psychiatric symptoms and syndromes. Unfortunately, much of the extant literature does a poor job of differentiating concussive events from TBI. This presentation will provide an update on the diagnostic criteria for concussion and differentiate it from TBI. The role of repetitive concussion on mood, cognition and behavior will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of concussion assessment for the practicing psychiatrist. Future directions for research, and the role of psychiatry will be highlighted.
