WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will be focusing on the topic of loss and grief following a brain injury. After a brain injury, feelings of sadness, frustration and loss are common after brain injury. These feelings often appear during the later stages of recovery, after the individual has become more aware the of injury’s aftereffects. If these feelings become overwhelming or interfere with recovery, the person may experience a diminished quality of life. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore the notion of loss and grief after a brain injury, while providing opportunities for personal support and reflection.

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.
