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

We went Bowling for Brain Injury today - IBIA style! Indianapolis and last years national winner, Ft Wayne enjoyed a day of family fun, from doctors to survivors, and all inbetween! Dr. Kevin Butterfield was an 'on the spot' reporter on our venture to Indy, and the wonderful Kristen Smith rounds up action from Ft Wayne.
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.
I'm not, but alive and thrive best I can with the tools I got. Listen to a full report on my now skills, my family's' skills and of course, the wonderful Dr. Butt....erfield. The events happening, the progress of the national event.
