Addressing Dimensions of Wellness after a Brain Injury: The New Normal
It can be challenging to navigate what wellness looks like after a brain injury. The term “wellness” is not limited to only physical wellness, but also incorporates areas such as emotional, intellectual, spiritual and occupational wellness. There are many different aspects of wellness that can be addressed and not everyone balances these in the same way. This webinar will discuss the different dimensions of wellness and how to find ways to incorporate them into one’s life on a daily basis. Devon will also discuss ways that survivors can be active contributors to their own health and wellness through addressing these different areas of well-being.
