Abstract: This project focused on individuals with TBI (traumatic brain injury) and language used when self-awareness of an injury has increased. Research has shown that self-awareness of one’s impairments improves with time as one adjusts to the disability. The current methods for studying and measuring self-awareness in TBI patients are subjective rating scales and self-report questionnaires, where an individual’s ratings of his or her own disability is compared to a family members’ ratings. In this scenario, the examiner assumes the family member is absolutely accurate in their assessment of the individual. Since this is almost never the case, these measurements are suspect. This project attempted a different method that examined the use of ‘self-awareness’ language..
