As we are wrapping up Brain Injury Awareness month, we would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to a few resources to better your understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the signs and symptoms of TBI, as well as information to help you solve TBI-related problems in everyday life.
Gain a better understanding of TBI and discover steps to help break down the problem-solving process to assist someone with TBI in everyday life situations in the article ‘Be an Expert Problem Solver! Caregiving for and Coping with Traumatic Brain Injury,’. Be sure to check out the worksheets within the article, to help you identify patterns of problems in thinking or other areas, devise a problem-solving plan and build effective problem solving skills.
Another great resource to explore, is the ‘A Head for The Future’ TBI awareness initiative brought to you by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) an organization dedicated to serving active-duty military, their beneficiaries, and veterans with TBI.
Through the ‘A Head for The Future’ initiative you can learn ways to stay safe, recognize the signs and symptoms of TBI and discover resources for getting help.
The DVBIC offers tools, support and assistance to anyone who has experienced a TBI, as well as to those who knows someone who has a TBI. To find out more about this program and DVBIC check out their website here.
