Training Project 1: Translation of Evidence-based Recommendations into Self-management of Cognitive and Emotional Problems after TBI

Background

Cognitive and behavioral impairments, including deficits in attention, memory, executive functioning, social communication, behavioral control, and awareness, are common following TBI. There is a growing body of evidence supporting the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation for persons with TBI. However, many persons with TBI have limited or no access to brain injury rehabilitation services, including cognitive rehabilitation.

Objectives

The purpose of this training project is to translate evidence-based compensatory strategies for the management of cognitive and emotional problems after TBI by survivors and caregivers.

The project includes:

Online Course: Coping with Emotional and Thinking Changes that Occur after TBI for Caregivers

Online Course: Coping with Emotional and Thinking Changes that Occur after TBI for Consumers
