WA State Youth TBI Support Group (Invite Only)

Description

The landscape of concussion awareness has changed dramatically in the last couple of decades, yet discussions surrounding the sustainment of a concussion remain somewhat generalized. The primary focus of this group session will be to discuss “how” people talk about concussions amongst peers, family, and the community at large, in addition to, how to improve those interactions. Opportunities for personal reflection and disclosure amongst group members will be provided throughout the session

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.

 

*Please note, groups with "private" in the title are specifically for groups hosted in facilities and are not open for public entry.
