Loving What Is: Rediscovering Our Nature by Embracing Daily Rhythms
In this workshop we’ll take a beginner’s look at Ayurveda and consider how daily routines and reflections on sensory input could make a powerful impact on healing and adapting to life with a TBI. Managing the balance between rest and activity can make a difference in how we experience common symptoms of TBI, such as fatigue, headaches, sensory overload, and emotional lability.

Traumatic Brain Injury & Opioid Misuse w/Dr. John Corrigan & Dr. Rachel Sayko Adams
People who have a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are more likely to be exposed to prescription opioids, appear to be more vulnerable to its misuse and face greater challenges trying to recover from an opioid use disorder (OUD). These combined risks have been called a “perfect storm” of TBI and opioids.
I Just Can’t Think Straight: Domestic Violence, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Strangulation w/ Rachel Ramirez
In the domestic violence field, we have known for decades that abusers intentionally target a victim’s head, neck and face, with terrifying and painful repeated assaults and strangulation. The Center on Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury’s groundbreaking research revealed that over 8 out of 10 people accessing domestic violence services had experienced head trauma, often repeatedly and concurrently–and the significant ways this violence can impact the brain. These invisible injuries are rarely identified and almost never immediately treated, and have a host of physical, emotional, and cognitive consequences that can impact every area of a person’s life. This makes it more difficult for them to get what they need from agencies designed to serve them. Come to learn about the dynamics of domestic violence, partner-inflicted brain injury, and Ohio’s practical, free tools developed for you to raise awareness and build relationships with domestic violence service providers.
Tai Chi with Anne Bower
Tai Chi’s gentle, coordinated movements focus the mind and provide the body with beneficial stretches and relaxation. During this hour long session we will play with moves from various tai chi forms, discovering how they awaken us to our own posture, tension points, and relationship to the space around us. Participants can remain seated or stand to do the tai chi movements, and each person will be encouraged to make adjustments to suit her/his own body.

Identifying & Screening for Brain Injuries w/ Dr. Kim Gorgens
This presentation will highlight a novel model from Colorado that is designed to quickly identify brain injury history in any setting, assess cognitive functioning and psycho-social vulnerabilities (by clinician assessment or brief self-report instrument) and to make customized recommendations that support the individual through various systems (e.g., school, criminal justice, behavioral health).
