This free webinar will expand on the role of psychosocial services provided for those who have sustained a brain or spinal cord injury. The speakers will explore different principles, intervention techniques and strategies to support adjustment after injury and how they are applied during inpatient rehabilitation, as well as long-term living.
When properly applied these services can:
- Minimize disruptions to on-going therapy.
- Offer additional support and resources to patients, families and caregivers.
- Improve outcomes while mitigating long-term costs.
