WA State TBI Support Group

Description

The session will focus on the topic of managing self-criticism when living with the aftereffects of a brain injury. Self-criticism and feelings associated with it, can be exacerbated following a brain injury, which may cause further complications in overall well-being. However, learning to overcome negative self-reflections through positive habits and challenging irrational thoughts, has the potential to lead to building stronger mental resilience. Through discussion and reflection, the group will explore the concept of self-criticism and discuss habit building, while providing opportunities for personal support and reflection.

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.
