WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing exploring strategies for distinguishing between complex emotions and relating them to the experience of sustaining a brain injury. Emotions can be elusive and what begins as feelings of fatigue can develop into outbursts of anger. By understanding how an emotion affects us, individuals can be better equipped to manage their emotions. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore this topic and the reason for its importance while living with a brain injury. In addition, opportunities for personal support and reflection will be provided.

Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Educational Support Groups 

The Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Advisory Council provides Support Groups through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) that emphasize education and interpersonal support.

The TBI Support Groups are predicated on the concept that a person-centered approach can empower and enrich an individual’s life following a Traumatic Brain Injury.

The emphasis of DSHS TBI Funded Support groups is to aid in developing long-term knowledge and generic problem-solving skills to help attendees overcome obstacles that may interfere with a fulfilling life.

While these groups may provide a therapeutic effect, they do not provide therapy and instead focus on delivering organized bodies of knowledge and resources for the betterment of attendees.
