T2: Increasing Community Awareness of TBI and Reducing Attitudinal Barriers
Project Director: Karen A. Hart, Ph.D.
Lack of understanding about TBI among family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and others can lead to attitudinal barriers that limit a person with TBI from participating fully in their community. This project is designed to develop educational materials in English and Spanish that can be used by persons with TBI to inform persons in their community about brain injury. The materials are being developed with the Brain Injury Association of America, Inc., using input from people with TBI, their family members and friends. Training activities include:
- Fact Sheets
- Videotaped Educational Materials
- Booklets on Issues Related to Community Integration Following TBI
- Creation of an online training video: "Increasing Community Awareness of TBI and Reducing Attitudinal Barriers: A Video Series" - http://www.tbicommunity.org/resources/video/Community_Awareness.html
