Understanding Brain Injury 101

In partnership with March of Dimes Canada Training Institute, we will be bringing a series of one-day training sessions to communities across Nova Scotia.

For those who play a significant role in supporting individuals who have experienced a brain injury (professionals & caregivers).

Caregivers and those who work in rehabilitation and community settings will benefit from this course. This course is developed as an introduction to understanding the brain’s anatomy and function and how these may be impacted by a variety of brain injuries.

The course then reviews client-specific considerations and approaches to brain injury rehabilitation. It provides participants with strategies they can apply to their day-to-day work supporting individuals who are living with the effects of brain injury.

Upcoming locations & dates:
  • Sydney: May 18th, 2021
  • Yarmouth: May 20th, 2021
  • Wolfville/Kentville: May 21st, 2021

(All dates 9AM-4PM)

Supporting the Supporter Series

For family and caregivers.

This six-session program is designed to assist family and caregivers in exploring your role, acknowledge how your life has changed, and provide you with strategies for managing challenges while connecting with others with similar experiences. We have offered this series both in-person and online. 

The online series consisted of two parts: Videos posted on our YouTube channel every Friday. Then, the following Thursday, an interactive Zoom session where you saw and heard our facilitator, Amy Sullivan, and had a discussion with the group on care giving and brain injury. While this series has completed, the videos are still available for you to watch, and learn for free!

Ambiguous Loss and Brain Injury with Community Educator Shelley Pick

For survivors, family, and caregivers.

Brain injury can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone.

We understand how profoundly a brain injury impacts you and everyone close to you. Ambiguous loss can be one of the most difficult challenges many survivors and families face after a brain injury.

Ambiguous loss is a loss that defies closure or understanding and leaves us searching for answers. This complicates and delays the process of grieving and prevents us from finding the resolution that we need to move forward with our lives in a meaningful way. This is a 2.5-hour workshop.
