  1. Preparing Patients for Discharge from Brain Injury Rehabilitation:
    This presentation offers students a first-person patient and caregiver perspective about preparing brain injury patients for discharge. Key considerations regarding a therapist’s beliefs about brain injury recovery and how it can impact a patient’s personal view of their potential for continued improvement will be discussed. Proven practical tools and strategies that students will be able to use in helping patients successfully move forward in their recovery, long after therapy has ended, will be provided. The presenters provide rare insight into what is possible in the recovery process years after a patient is discharged from rehab.  This presentation is ideal for allied health and counseling students pursuing a career in neuro-rehabilitation.
