Description

The Lefaivre Rainbow Effect knits together concepts that persons with traumatic brain injuries can relearn and can then maximize their potential. This course provides a real world, tangible and systematic approach for specialized community-based traumatic brain injury rehabilitation that builds on the individual’s capabilities and social situations to extend the individuals potential to re-engage in life and visualize future possibilities. This approach is the philosophy of respecting the human spirit and, as such, does not heal, but facilitates the healing process through collaboration and an understanding of each person’s unique circumstance. This process was developed based on years of experience and is a formula that fully appreciates and accounts for pre-injury and is realistic by factoring in primary and secondary losses. This approach includes the client and the family unit in order to identify issues, educates all care givers, and minimizes the effects on the dysfunctional family. Included in the course are clinical experiences of occupational therapists and practical tips for the therapist as well as forms and templates to assist the therapist during treatment. Course includes the text: Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation by Christine Lefaivre, OT. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------COURSE OBJECTIVES:At the completion of this course, the therapist will be able to: 1.
