Extend the vocational rehabilitation process with supplementary treatment modalities to provide the necessary framework and tools to help maximize vocational skill-building specific to individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) causes deficits in overall functioning and can have a profound impact on employment. In fact, many individuals with TBI, from mild to severe, have difficulty finding and maintaining employment. Through a critical evaluation of recreation and leisure activities, and their direct benefits to the TBI individual, rehabilitation counselors can incorporate a unique approach to maximize vocational outcomes for their TBI clients. These complementary treatment modalities - the effective use of recreation and leisure activities - may contribute to greater self-efficacy, mastery, and intrinsic motivation.
In analyzing the needs of clients who are post-TBI, this course uses the foundation of Transferable Skills Analysis (TSA) to then conduct activity analysis, to simultaneously optimize both vocational skill-building and vocational outcomes. Through combining activity and job analysis, you’ll pinpoint skills that are utilized both in recreation and leisure activities and in the employment setting. New learning is then applied to three different TBI case scenarios - mild, moderate, and severe.
You'll enhance your rehabilitation counseling process as you select, analyze, and modify recreation and leisure activities with the client’s intended vocational goals in mind.
