Join us and talk about art in the brain injury community. Whether it's for personal expression, politics, community-building, rehab, or therapy, what kind of art do you make? What does art bring to your life? What stories can you share through art that you don't share any other way?
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. Tonight we explore the person behind the brain injury to gain insight into who the person is, what their abilities are, what they want to achieve, and what their vision of life is. This insight will also provide information about what can be realistically expected from the person and the best way to interact. In order to get the specific information we need, will work on eliciting information from the following components:
Key Life Events: general personal history and brain injury history
Abilities and limitations
Pre-injury personal development

Maybe you've heard of her, maybe not. You will after tonight. A therapist with passion who works at Parkview Hospital, co-ordinates support groups in her area, state officer of the Indiana Brain Injury Association and TBI Advocate. You guys know me, so I must say - Kristen is beyond beautiful.
I'll bring to you a family enjoying, well, their family. Amber Ange is a special TBI Survivor, and her family support beyond your imagination. She is a darling young lady, full of spunk, energy and drive.

Building new relationships without becoming too OCD about new people in our lives.
This is a subject in the brain injury community for survivors I have seen and heard from many members about their trials with these dilemmas.
"I lost the majority of my friends and family since my brain injury. How do I know these new person won't bail on me now?"
"Who can I trust?"
"Are they friends or just sympathetic?"
"Who do I talk to that understand me?"
We would love to touch base on different people's stories by hearing your circumstances and experiences. We like to hear everyone's viewpoints and recommendations. This better assists each others growth as individuals and as a group for all sides involvement with brain injury.

Do you have a hard time reading? Writing? and for me the most difficult one, saying what you mean to say? This is very common problem with those who have had a brain injury. I remember struggling through these obstacles as my brain was healing. I still struggle at times when things are stressful or I am tired. I am happy to welcome Rebecca Kipping, speech therapist who will join the show to talk about aphasia. Aphasia is a disorder caused by damage to the parts of the brain that control language. Aphasia makes it hard to read, write and say what you mean to say. Here is a little bit about Rebecca:
Rebecca Kipping is a Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist from the UK. She established the Speech Therapy Centre in 2003 and has worked within the field of adult neurology since 2002. The Speech Therapy Centre’s aim is to improve the awareness of communication and swallowing difficulties caused by stroke and brain injury and to be of help to anyone who needs it.
Do you have questions even before the show? Please find the show on Facebook, TBI Quantum Leap and message me with your questions! I will make sure to ask Rebecca when she is on! Tune in, call in and together we can make a difference!
Sports and concussions have spurred a tremendous amount of media attention in the recent years. What do we know about the long-term affects of concussions? What are the current researchers focusing on concerning sports and concussions?
Please join me in welcoming Dr. McDonald from the Neuroscience Center at Indiana University Medical Center. Dr. McDonald will be discussing a rather large research study funded by the NFL and GE concerning youth and concussions. Dr. McDonald is the lead investigator of just one of sixteen research facilities that have been awarded this grant. Tune in, call in and together we can make a difference!
