Abstract
Background: Violence, abuse, and neglect (VAN) among people with physical and other disabilities has been reported; however, little is known about VAN experiences among people with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Methods: Nine people who reported experiencing VAN post-TBI were interviewed for this phenomenological study. The data were analyzed to understand VAN as experienced by those with TBI. Results: Participants detailed many VAN experiences along with contributing factors, barriers in obtaining help, and recommendations for improving preventive and assistance services. Conclusions: Greater efforts are needed to identify and prevent VAN among people with TBI. Services following VAN must be improved.
