  • solve problems more effectively
  • better distinguish between emotional and physical recovery
  • learn to better manage stress
  • learn to appreciate the idea that recovery takes time
  • better cope with loss and change
  • learn to develop reasonable goals
  • learn to better manage intense emotions
  • learn strategies to extend the natural recovery process

 

The Brain Injury Family Intervention Kit contains the following materials

  • Intervention manual describing treatment rationale and background; detailed treatment implementation procedures; accommodations for injury-related difficulties; and guidelines for covering additional topics relating to brain injury.
