Beyond Brain Injury: Perspectives on Progress, Reflection, Rehabilitation, and Recovery--Volume 1

Edited by Barbara Stahura and Marilyn Lash-Cluett, this collection compiles feature articles by known experts and authors from the brain injury community. They offer introspective, insightful observations and provide helpful information for survivors of brain injury, their families, caregivers, and professional clinicians.

Volume 1 is unique because it is tackling issues on family coping, caregiver stress, grief and loss, legal issues, survivor perspectives, journaling, clinical treatment, children and adolescents, sports injuries and concussion, PTSD & veterans. The writing styles of each author make the information understandable to anyone impacted by an incident of brain injury, yet still relevant to any clinician. The selected authors share their expertise and knowledge about the "human" side of brain injury. Included in many of the articles are easily understood advances in neurorehabilitation, cognitive therapy, research findings and more.

What will make this book of even more value is to add some of the Tip Cards from Lash and Associates Publishing Collection covering many of the topics addressed by the authors. This book becomes a vital element for all who read it, from the home living room to the regional hospital family room, from the doctor or therapist's waiting area to a rehabilitation center resource center. This is one book that provides a lot of "a-ha" moments. Each article stands alone and can be read in a few minutes.

Beyond Brain Injury, Volume 1, is more than a booklet it is a useful tool for living a full life after brain injury. From tips on rebuilding your life after brain injury, to preventing concussions, to understanding that you're not alone as a survivor, family member or caregiver...this is not a typical brain injury resource anthology, but a treasure chest of information. It's all about life and how to strive to continue day-to-day. Page one is where everyone can start finding new ways to live it!
