About the Events

PROVAIL LOGO

HeadStrong greatly appreciates the opportunity to lead our trainings at University of Puget Sound.

The HeadStrong Training Program is designed to help you be an empowering support person. Our trainings are excellent for professionals, care-partners, parents, people living with brain injury, and students.  

Meaningful Projects & Activities is the last module in our three-module series. This module is based on the work we do in the Identity module. We brainstorm projects that are meaningful to you or the person you are working with. We use exercises and tools to make ambitious projects doable. We work with planning tools for successful projects – Goal, Obstacle, Plan, Do, Review. When our identity is supported and we are engaged in meaningful projects, our sense of belonging and purpose are restored. HeadStrong provides all training materials and handouts to use in your work or home setting.

About the Organizer

HeadStrong is a non-profit organization based in western Washington that supports children, teens, and young adults who are living with brain injury and their families. The HeadStrong Training Program is based on the excellent model of the New York State TBI Apprenticeship Program. We are indebted to Tim Feeney, PhD and Mark Ylvisaker for their groundbreaking work in this field. Robert Karol, PhD work gave us insight on anger, reward and punishment, and alternatives to traditional behavioral interventions. We are also grateful to Aspiro Wilderness Therapy Camps for their work with young people and self-efficacy and the Arbinger Institute for their work with authentic communication. We are grateful to the many people who work everyday to rebuild meaningful lives after brain injury.
