Changing the narrative to hope: Maximizing brain health, function and participation following Brain Injury
Intensive Cross Cutting Symposium
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of long-term morbidity in children and adolescents. Evidence indicates that individual/host, injury-related, environmental, and physical and social activities may all influence the development of problems or facilitate recovery after injury. A comprehensive understanding of how these various factors interact to influence recovery and affect brain health and wellness would inform development of comprehensive management approaches. The overall objective of this symposium is to characterize a biopsychosocial model of recovery and provide evidence-based examples of how social, environmental/family, and activity/exercise based interventions can have a positive impact on long-term functioning.
