Objective: To systematically explore the literature surrounding TBI in adult prison populations. Method: Twenty six studies spanning six countries were included. All studies were published in peer reviewed journals and sampled adults from general prison populations (aged 18+). Results: Only seven studies employed valid and reliable measures of TBI. The presence of TBI related problems such as aggression, depression, substance abuse, psychiatric disorders, and neurocognitive deficits were evident within prisoner samples.
