After Brain Injury: Telling Your Story, A Journaling Workbook

Schuster guides survivors of brain injury and blast injury through the powerful healing experience of telling their own stories with simple journaling techniques.

Journaling after brain injury helps written and verbal communication skills and provides cognitive retraining for following instruction. It helps promote self awareness as well as recognition of strengths and difficulties after brain injury. It is a tool for planning for the future and discussions with family members.

Brain Injury Isn't Funny (But Humor Helps You Cope)

If anyone ever had a reason not to laugh, author Bill Jarvis would be first in line. While a college professor at Taylor University in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Dr. Jarvis was involved in a serious car collision. Diagnosed with a severe TBI and multiple fractures, he was in a coma for five weeks, followed by a hospital stay of 1 1/2 years. Bill picked up the pieces and has worked fervently to make his new life as rewarding and fullfilled as he possibly could - and he’s done quite well, considering what he’s been through.

After all of this, Bill has held onto one of his primary (and most critically important) qualities...his sense of humor! In his new book, Brain Injury Isn’t Funny, Bill takes a light-hearted approach to a serious subject, and lifts hopes (and eyebrows) for all who read it – whether they’re a TBI survivor or not.
