The Children & Adolescents Committee of the Brain Injury Association of New Jersey will again be hosting spring sessions for parents and school professionals on brain injury, with the upcoming sessions focusing on A Sibling’s Response to Brain Injury. The sessions will address the feelings of stress, frustration, sadness and guilt that are often felt by siblings of a child with brain injury.
The sessions will take place in two locations: on Wednesday, March 14 from 7-9pm at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside and on Tuesday, April 24 from 6:30-8:30pm at Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital in Marlton. Sue Stephens, a pediatric social worker for the Cancer Institute of NJ and one of the authors of our brain injury educator guides, will be the presenter at Children’s Specialized Hospital. Sally Kneipp, Director of the Community Skills brain injury rehabilitation program and neuropsychologist, will be the presenter at Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital. Both sessions will also include a presentation by a sibling of a child with brain injury.
