Barbara Stahura’s new book, co-authored with Susan B. Schuster, M.A., CCC-SLP, is titled AFTER BRAIN INJURY: TELLING YOUR STORY. The first journaling book writter specifically for people with brain injury, it has been endorsed by leading journal researchers, trauma managers and researchers who work with people with brain injury, including veterans; and the founder of the National Veterans Association. It evolved out of a journaling workshop for survivors of brain injury workshop for survivors of brain injury that Stahura created after her husband sustained such an injury in 2003. AFTER BRAIN INJURY: TELLING YOUR STORY was released by Lash & Associates Publishing/Training in late September. It is available from their Web site at www.lapublishing.com/tbisurvivor-journal of from Stahura at www.barbarastahura.com.
In conjunction with book, Stahura has launched a blog, Journal After Brain Injury, at http://journalafterbrainininjury.wordpress.com, for people with brain injury and family caregivers. Along with information on brain injury, it contains journaling exercises readers can use to tell their stories and so assist their healing.
