Study evaluated the efficacy of a behavior management program delivered in natural home and community settings for people with brain injury and their caregivers. The Natural Setting Behavior Management (NSBM) program involved education and individualized assistance with behavior management. Participants in the NSBM group were compared with an education-only group and a control group. Changes in frequency of targeted problem behaviors and data on caregiver burden and stress were analyzed. Results indicated a significant reduction in target behaviors for the NSBM group at a 3-month follow-up. Differences in caregiver stress, burden, and aggression were not statistically significant.
