About Brain Injury
After brain injury multiple impairments, functional limitations, and social implications are often interrelated, impacting affect and relative quality of life.
While some individuals with brain injury need therapeutic services after leaving the hospital and/or visiting their physician’s office, many do not receive the services needed to improve mental health and obtain maximum functional gains.
How Counseling Can Help
Counseling helps individuals with brain injury understand strengths, cope with challenges, and obtain skills and strategies to reach personal goals.
Common goals addressed in counseling sessions include:
- Improving emotional health issues such as depression, anxiety, and anger management.
- Compensating and remediation of attention, memory, learning deficiencies, problems solving skills, and other areas of cognitive functioning.
- Learning strategies to restore energy from consistent fatigue.
- Identifying problems, education, and encouragement after post-concussion syndrome.
- Helping family members adjust to changes and learn techniques to influence progress with functional challenges.
- Achieving daily living, vocational, and educational aspirations.
- Reestablishing an acceptable sense of self.
