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

  • Rebuilding Identity after Brain Injury
  • Saturday, February 4 – Noon – 3:00 pm
  • University of Puget Sound, Weyerhauser Hall, Tacoma WA
  • Identity is key to our motivations and roles in our communities and is nearly always impacted after brain injury. We work with tools and exercises to recognize and rebuild an authentic desired identity. When our desired identity is supported, it helps us find a positive role in our community.
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Tuesday, April 4 – 5:00 to 8:00 pm
  • University of Puget Sound, Weyerhauser Hall, Tacoma, WA
  • In Conflict Resolution we explore a critical issue after brain injury. We do exercises with self-monitoring and self-calming and learn communication skills to reduce conflict. We create “Maps to Okay” to help navigate difficult emotins. These tools help us develop successful habits to build trust during stressful times. We provide training materials and handouts to use in your work or home setting.
  • Meaningful Projects & Activities
  • Tuesday, April 18 – 5:00 to 8:00 pm
  • University of Puget Sound, Weyerhauser Hall, Tacoma WA
    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.
