Changing the narrative to hope: Maximizing brain health, function and participation following Brain Injury
An individual's life can shift dramatically after sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The dynamics of life, from interpersonal relationships to professional goals, has the potential to fundamentally change the course of life due to the biological impact of the injury. At the core of these changes, is the paradigm of the self. Through case study research, we will explore the narrative of loss and reconciliation of the self as it pertains the recovery trajectory of those that sustain a TBI. Strategies to promote hope and positive outcomes during rehabilitation and long-term recovery will be identified and reviewed.
