Medical Malpractice Lawyer Honolulu – Ian Mattoch serves as President of the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii.
Ian received an announcement from the TBI Listserv, “Small Voices” – a webinar for children with parents with brain injury, held by the Brain Injury Association of New York State. This webinar addressed what children with parents with brain injury may be experiencing as well as making suggestions on how to approach sharing information while maintaining feelings of emotional security.
The February, 2014 webinar presented an overview of the effect of brain injury on the entire family unit, especially when a caregiver parent is injured. While recovering from the injury and working through any residual physical, cognitive, and emotional impairments from the brain injury, the caregiver parent is usually overburdened with medical appointments and therapies, and may be less attentive or interactive with their children. The webinar discussed experiences from the point of view of the child of a parent with brain injury and presented strategies and approaches in making sure that these “small voices” are not only shared and heard, but that a response is made. For more information on this webinar presented by Lois P. Tannenbaum, PsyD, CBIS, LEND, contact the Brain Injury Association of New York by visiting their website.
