EmpowerEd: TBI in Relationships

March 18 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm CDT

EmpowerEd TBI in relationships

Join us for the third installment of the EmpowerEd trauma and relationships series to learn about Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and how a TBI can impact your relationship with your service member or veteran.

A TBI is a serious injury that can leave an individual with physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms. As a loved one, cultivating understanding is important, and you may have questions. What can I expect in terms of symptoms? How do I communicate with my spouse/partner? Is this the TBI, PTSD, or both, and what does that mean for recovery?How do I take care of myself, while supporting my loved one?

We are excited to welcome Dr. Roxana Delgado and her husband SFC (Ret.) Victor L. Medina, MRC, CRC US Army, co-founders of the TBI Warrior Foundation. Not only will they provide expertise from their professional roles supporting individuals with brain injuries, but they will also provide personal insight as a couple living with a TBI in their relationship.

The EmpowerEd trainings/seminars are open to the wider military-affiliated community and are offered Free of charge. Encouraged participants include the spouse or partner of an active duty service member or post-service veteran, a caregiver or divorced spouse from a veteran or active duty service member, or an active duty service member or veteran.

We will offer a peer support complement to this event on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at 11 am CT with VSN peer leader and caregiver Janie Smith. Register for this event HERE.
