HeadStrong Mentor Training at BEST on 10/29 – “Identity & Meaningful Projects”

Join HeadStrong for Mentor Training for Brain Injury – “Identity & Meaningful Projects”

Brain Energy Support Team, Tacoma – Wednesday, October 29th – 5:00 to 9:00 pm


The HeadStrong Mentor Training Program is designed to train professionals, family members, caregivers, tutors, and anyone living or working with people who live with brain injury. Mentoring is a traditional way societies pass on knowledge by working side by side and setting a positive example. This training will help you reach your potential to be an empowering support person.

The Mentor Training includes four training modules:
*  Identity After Brain Injury
*  Meaningful Projects & Activities
*  Positive Behavior Supports
*  Conflict Resolution

In each module we explore the concepts and learn practical skills to empower ourselves and people living with brain injury. We explore the role of social identity in rebuilding life after brain injury; design meaningful projects and activities, learn skills for positive behavior supports, and practice communication tools that build trust during conflict resolution. We provide a binder with all training materials and handouts to use in your work or home setting.

In this training at BEST we will cover the first two modules:”Identity after Injury & Meaningful Projects and Activities.

We will offer trainings in the last two modules: Positive Behavior Supports & Conflict Resolution in January 2015.
