Came across a link to a great blog post, talking about how important validation is for TBI survivors. Validation, Recovery, and the Diane Rehm Show. It talks about how important validation is for TBI survivors, which gives me more food for thought in my work on restoring a Sense-Of-Self after brain injury.
Validation is about more than just getting attention. It’s an important part of reinforcing who we are and who we believe ourselves to be — and who we are becoming.
The blog post also mentions a radio show where the author of “The Ghost In My Brain” talks about his experiences. http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2015-06-04/new-treatments-for-concussions I’m listening to the show right now and enjoying it… though I have to use Internet Explorer to hear the audio – none of the other browsers I have will play it.
Gotta run and get supper cooking. I’ll listen to the show while I’m cooking.
Good use of time.
