WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on the topic of developing an understanding and individualized interpretation of basic emotions. Many individuals struggle with identifying and interpreting their emotions following a brain injury. Complex emotions are often hidden underneath superficial understandings, with a stronger sense of understanding, individuals can process both “how” and “why” they feel certain emotions in an efficient manner. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore the notion of basic emotions, its importance, and introduce strategies for understanding these emotions. 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.
