WA State Caregiver Support Group

Description

The following session will be focused on building personal resilience for those that are caregivers. Being a caregiver can lead someone down a road of unplanned life changes and increased stress. Through fostering a stronger sense of resilience, a person can remain strong even when confronted with difficult decisions and situations. This session will explore strategies and tools to improve resilience in the midst of unpleasant situations. Opportunities for discussion, 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.
