WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on exploring the topic of emotion management for those individuals living with a brain injury. Learning to recognize, verbalize, and manage emotions is key to developing a strong sense of personal well-being. For some individuals, the physical impact of the injury can fundamentally alter emotional interpretation and balance. These changes are often due to damage to the frontal lobes, wherein there might be difficulties controlling behavior and emotional outbursts. Through self-reflection and discussion, the group will explore the importance of self-awareness and share their experiences with emotional management after a brain injury. In addition, opportunities for personal support and reflection will be provided.

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.
