WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on exploring the experience of living with a brain injury. Sustaining this type of injury might cause permanent physical and mental complications, which can affect multiple bodily systems (i.e., polytrauma). While many individuals may fully recover from their injury, they may still experience long-term symptoms or effects. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore the emotional impact of the long-term consequences of a brain injury. Both awareness and support can be strong benefits for those individuals that struggle with the effects caused by their injury. Opportunities for personal support and reflection will be provided.

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.
