Trainer(s): Dan Overton, MA LMHC

Details: The brain is to mental health/illness as the heart is to heart health/disease. Similarly any injury to the heart will affect heart health and any injury to the brain can effect mental health. The prevalence of brain injury in behavioral health is higher than most think due mostly to the clients themselves not understanding the connection between an injury to the brain and the symptoms that can remain even ager a minor concussion and a lack of understanding about the connections between brain injury and behavioral health. This workshop will take a deeper dive into the connections of behavioral health and brain injury, how to identify brain injury in your clients and how to integrate successful strategies into your treatment plans.

Objectives: 1. Identify brain injury in clients. 2. Describe ways to incorporate brain injury interventions into treatment plans 3. Understand how brain injury can effect behavioral health conditions 4. Distinguish the differences between types of head injuries and why many may be minimalized and/or dismissed. 5. Identify at least 3 ways they may be able to assist the client in understanding and living with a brain injury.
