After Brain Injury: Telling Your Story, A Journaling Workbook

This workbook by Barbara Stahura and Susan B. Schuster guides survivors of brain injury and blast injury through the powerful healing experience of telling their own stories with simple journaling techniques. By writing short journal entries, survivors explore the challenges, losses, changes, emotions, adjustments, stresses, and milestones as they rebuild their lives. 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. Journaling can be done individually, in a group or with assistance from caregivers or family.

Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline

Bonnie Nish has compiled a collection of personal experiences of recovery by survivors of mild traumatic brain injury. Imagine being a single mom about to take your children on a family vacation. Suddenly, the van door swings shut and hits you in the head. You think, "Wow!! That hurt, but it's nothing an ice pack can’t solve." A few months after this happened to Meg Stainsby, she was sitting at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner table when she suddenly recalled signing papers to sell the home she shared with her two daughters and dog in order to move into a small two-bedroom condominium.

Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline gives clear insight into how the lives of those suffering from concussion and mild brain injury (MBI) are impacted. The individual stories of injury, recovery and discovery document the effect of the survivor's MBI on immediate and extended family members, and social and work communities.

These first-hand accounts of survivors of MBI in many facets of the community will bring tears, laughter and increased understanding, restoring hope that the ongoing challenges faced by the survivors in all walks of life can and will improve. Each story shows that MBI touches the lives of individuals from all strata of society, from the media famous to the relatively unknown.

Supporting Survivors and Caregivers after Brain Injury: A program for psychosocial support

This workbook approaches Acquired Traumatic Brain Injury holistically because it affects every member of the family and any caregiver and/or therapist working with the individual. The unique method presented in the manual provides the means to develop skills, activities and other tools that promote the survivor regaining control over personal lifestyle. It focuses on how to support the survivior living at home, in a residential program, in a nursing home, or in an assisted living facility. The SABI Method provides insight into the change the brain has experienced, the changes in social networks, the perspective change, looking at life in a new way, and maximizing the survivor's quality of life.

It helps caregivers address the questions of:

  • How can I help the person with a brain injury sort out his life again?
  • What does she hope to achieve in the future and are her goals realistic?
  • How do I talk about these things with him?
  • How can I help care for her without taking over her life?

Many survivors and families talk about life before and after the brain injury. This workbook helps them work with caregivers to connect both these lives, regain control, and improve their lives.

The SABI program includes the person with a brain injury (the survivor), the family and caregivers in all aspects of care and support. Together, they work and function as a team.
