People with Traumatic Brain Injuries May Face Challenges in Empathizing with Others

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is lasting brain damage from an external force, such as a fall or accident. TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe. Past research has found that some people with TBI may have trouble empathizing with others. Empathy is the process of caring about, understanding, and sharing another person’s feelings, and it is important for healthy relationships. Empathy has two main components: cognitive empathy, or understanding another person’s point of view; and emotional empathy, or concern about another person’s feelings.
