Reconnect Transition Program
February 3, 2017 @ 10:15 am – 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:15 am on Friday, repeating until April 7, 2017
The RTP is funded by the Lifetime Support Authority and helps people adjust to life after an ABI, assisting them to successfully reintegrate and reconnect with their communities. It is offered, at no cost, to people who have an ABI as a result of a road trauma incident.
The ten-week group course is for people aged 26 to 65. There is a separate program, yRTP, designed for people aged 16 to 25 (for more information, please see below).
The course is run in a supportive group environment and provides an opportunity for people to share and explore their experiences, gain further knowledge about ABI, work through their individual challenges and put plans in place for the future.
A range of topics are covered in the program, including learning more about the brain, common challenges after ABI, health and wellbeing, building resilience, changes in interpersonal relationships, future work and study options, and brain training exercises for improving cognitive functioning.
