This article examines the role of the health social worker in the management of the psychosocial sequelae of head injury from the membership perspective. Data relative to the incidence and medical dimensions of head injury and its psychosocial sequelae are briefly reviewed. The social work definition of head injury as a social process, rather than a medical event, is explored. Social work interventions designed to help those affected by head injury to manage home and community life are examined.
