Topic: Challenging Negative Perceptions
Focus: Personal Development

WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on discussing the perception of experiences. Following a brain injury, many individuals report experiencing heightened levels of negative experiences, both personal and professional. These perceptions, while valid and likely rational, can be tainted by the effects instigated by a brain injury. However, there are healthy ways to challenge negative perceptions and reframe thoughts towards the positive, which can be of benefit long-term. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore this topic and how it relates to those living with a brain injury. In addition, opportunities for personal support and reflection will be provided.

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.
