In the Mentor Training – Identity & Meaningful Projects we present the first two key modules of our training.
* Rebuilding Identity after brain injury;
* Design meaningful projects and activities
We explore the importance of social identity and engagement in personally meaningful projects and activities. We will work in small groups on exercises to recognize a person’s desired identity and plan meaningful projects.
We provide a Mentor Training Manual with all training materials and handouts.
