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.

"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

which a behaviour is subject to a person’s control."
