Editors Marilyn Lash, M.S.W. and Barbara Stahura, C.F.J.

Edited by Barbara Stahura and Marilyn Lash-Cluett, this booklet is a compendium of feature articles and written perspectives of survivors, professionals, experts, and others known and respected in the brain injury community. Each writer seeks to enhance and increase knowledge levels and promote the dissemination of information. Coupling the individual article with TP CARDS, a readily affordable and available resource will only enhance and crystalize what should and needs to be known. Beyond Brain Injury, Volume 2, is an invaluable companion booklet and practical addition to the resources already available in Volume 1. This stand-alone booklet really belongs in every home, waiting room, hospital, clinic, and agency.

Beyond Brain Injury, Volume 2, just as Beyond Brain Injury, Volume 1, tackles many issues and expounds and expands on the information and knowledge each author consideres to be critical and crucial for many in and outside of the Brain Injury community. With articles spanning topics from family coping, grief and loss, caregiving, survivor support, wounded veterans, clinical updates, sports injuries, and educating students, Volume 2 has something for everyone. More than a book, it is a tool and path to rebuilding life after brain injury.
