DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): April 2014


 

Family Caregiver Support after Traumatic Brain Injury
 

Date/Time: April 10, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Family caregivers require and benefit from specialized support, education and understanding from health care professionals as they move through stages of adaptation that often correspond with the treatment and recovery of a service member who sustained a traumatic brain injury. In 2010, the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, in collaboration with the Defense Health Board, developed a “Traumatic Brain Injury: A Guide for Caregivers of Service Members and Veterans”. This guide contains four modules that provide in-depth information for family caregivers of service members or veterans with TBI. This includes information to help family caregivers understand TBI, how to advocate, help children cope with TBI and how to navigate services and benefits.

This webinar will review common emotional and cognitive responses, caregiver responsibilities, learning needs and educational interventions. This discussion will explore how to build a therapeutic alliance with families and resources for professionals to enhance their understanding of the family caregiver’s experience and perspective.

You are invited to the DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): April 2014 titled, Family Caregiver Support after Traumatic Brain Injury.  We look forward to your participation on Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT).  Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
