Hero's Journey

Kit Malia, BED, MPhil, CPCRT and Anne Brannagan, DIPCOT, MSc

Taking a unique approach to understanding the complexity and impact of acquired brain injuries, Kit Malia and Anne Brannagan have produced a workbook that is filled with practical exercises for clinicians, families, and individuals to use in rehabilitation settings, community programs and at home. The activities are designed as “adventures, challenges and insights” that are intended to enhance understanding of how the brain works and the various consequences of an injury. Each exercise has clear instructions and is accompanied by witty and clever analogies and illustrations which make this workbook entertaining as well as educational.

It is divided into 5 parts with activities focusing on understanding:

  • The Brain
  • Rehabilitation
  • Cognition
  • Emotions and Behavior
  • Adjustment

This workbook is an innovative approach to brain injury education that is a “must have” for any brain injury program.
