Brain Injury – A Silent Epidemic: Effects on the Social Service Field (2 CEUs)

January 18 • 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Zach Tubbs, LSW, CBIS

Description:

Traumatic brain injury is not just an event, similar to a broken bone that heals over time. Traumatic brain injury affects personal, emotional and physical needs that go beyond the diagnosis of brain injury. This workshop will focus on supporting clients as they continue their life after injury, expanding the knowledge base of what symptoms of brain injuries are, and how important small details can be for clients that we serve.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore neuroanatomical features of brain and common symptoms after injury
  • Offer guidance on best practice in working with those who have been effected by brain injury
  • Provide tools to help navigate life after brain injury and a professional and personal level
