Lives are drastically changed following brain injury from strokes, accidents, tumors, and other incidents.  Because the brain has changed, the person's mind is necessarily also affected, changing the sense of self, relationships with others, ways of functioning in the world, and much more.  

This conference brings together experienced professionals to discuss the services that are currently offered to patients with brain injury, and to point the way towards improved, expanded, and more integrated treatments that support patients to adapt and to develop new capacities.
