Dr. Maria Romanas knows first-hand what it means to live with a severe brain injury that occurred when she was 18. It took her 29 years to find out how to prevent her permanent cognitive impairments from causing disability in her professional and personal life.
An 8-week program of intensive holistic cognitive rehabilitation trained her to become her own self-therapist. Now with her brain under conscious control, she is thriving and functioning better than she has her whole adult life.
Although she is still working full time as a pathologist, her passion is brain injury recovery. As medical director of GiveBack, she educates survivors and families how to become their own self-therapists. She also educates physicians about chronic TBI and advocates for every survivor to have access to expert cognitive rehabilitation. www.medpagetoday.com/neurology.headtrauma/44084
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery, Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.
