Topic: Managing Holiday Season Stress for Caregivers
Focus: Holiday Season Stress

WA State Caregiver Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on the topic of finding meaningful ways to manage personal stress during the holiday season. For some family caregivers, the holiday season can be light-hearted time of connecting with loved ones. For others, it can add another dimension of stress, which leads to severe bouts of anxiety and depression. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore strategies to optimize their well-being during the holiday season for both themselves and those under their care. 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.
