WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on the topic of cognitive distortions, in regard to how it can impact life after sustaining a brain injury. Cognitive distortions are irrational thoughts that influence our emotions. Everyone experiences cognitive distortions to some degree, but in their more extreme form they can be maladaptive and harmful. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore ways to manage cognitive distortions through education on the topic. In addition, the group will provide opportunities for personal support and reflection.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

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.
