In the Mercury's opinion piece titled "Talking Point: Unlocking the psyche of violence", BIAT Executive Officer Deborah Byrne discusses the overlap between brain injury and domestic violence.

In June 2015, BIAT EO Deborah wrote an opinion article for local newspaper The Mercury. The piece, titled "Talking Point: Unlocking the psyche of violence", unpacks some of issues concerning the overlap between brain injury and domestic violence.

"THE overlap between brain injury and domestic violence is little understood because violence is not only a cause, but also a consequence of brain injury," writes Deborah.

"This is not to suggest brain injury should excuse violent behaviour but that it may be a mitigating factor — or relevant to judgments — about the degree to which a behaviour is subject to a person’s control."
