Tonight's episode continues our exploration of the book Supporting Survivors and caregivers after Brain Injury.  There are two successive phases: exploration and evolution. The exploration phase focuses on the person with the brain injury and his or her life. The model breaks this down into two components, each with corresponding questions. During our last segment we talked specifically about the person behind brain injury. Tonight were going to concentrate on 12 life themes that play a major role in the person's life. These life themes include:

  • Appearance
  • Health
  • Family/Relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Social contacts
  • Work
  • Finances
  • Recreation
  • Housing and housekeeping
  • Certainty about the future
  • Independence
  • Meaning in life
