How to work with Traumatic Brain Injury Clients and their Families

Presented and developed by Nancy Holmes, PsyD, CBIS and Kate Robinson, MA, LPC, CADCI and Lillieth Grand, MS, MT-BC

This workshop will cut across all levels of therapeutic experience and is based on the fundamental belief that many disciplines may be required to treat and navigate a Brain Injury survivor into a meaningful life beyond treatment.

Topics addressed during this workshop are from the perspective of mental health/ rehabilitation (including music therapy) professionals and include the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivor and their family. General themes include an overview of TBI including emotional aspects, identification of TBI from a variety of settings, the survivor's treatment team, pre-rehabilitation, rehabilitation and building a safety support net for the survivor.

Presenters Dr. Nancy Holmes, Kate Robinson and Lillieth Grand will share what they’ve learned from years of experience working with individuals with Brain Injury and their family members.
