There is an increasingly large population of those who are chronically disabled as the result of brain injury (Jennett & Macmillan, 1981). These injuries can be the result of trauma, infections, tumours, hypoglycemia, anoxia or other damaging conditions. The large majority of rehabilitation units cater for physical problems only. However, it has been recognised that patients with brain injury often develop behavioural disorders during the early recovery phase and in a few cases these persist (Eames & Wood, 1989).
