WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on the topic negative emotions after a brain injury. Some individuals can become fixated on certain thoughts or behaviors, in that, they might get scared, anxious, or confused when something unexpected occurs when it never occurred prior to their injury. Individuals may also get stuck on a topic during a conversation being unable to engage in dynamic discourse. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore how negative emotions impact quality of life after a brain injury and provide opportunities for personal support and reflection.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

Washington State Support Groups

 

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

 

The Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council provides Support Groups through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) that emphasize connection, education, and engagement in life after sustaining a TBI.

 

Our Support Groups are predicated on the concept of a person-centered approach that can aid in the development of long-term knowledge and generic problem-solving skills to help attendees overcome barriers to sustaining a fulfilling life.

 

These Support Groups may provide a therapeutic effect, but they do not provide therapy and instead focus on delivering organized bodies of knowledge and resources for the betterment of attendees.
