2022.10.04 Neurobehavioral Challenges in Acquired Brain Injury: Embracing the Challenge with Dignity

A Business of Brain Injury live webinar featuring Dave Anders, MS, CCC-SLP, CBIST. Airs live at 1 p.m. ET October 4, 2022.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. ET October 3, 2022. 

This presentation provides an overview of thought processes in the management of neurobehavioral challenges post ABI. It includes a reconceptualization of the traditional “behavior team / behavior plan” as “dignity team / dignity plan” and includes common challenges, thought processes, and specific interventions in both a theoretical and practical format. Case examples are provided.


• Identify how fundamental attribution error in caregivers adversely affects the development of mutually reinforcing relationships within the survivor/caregiver roles.
• Describe the neurobehavioral characteristics that necessitate the use of a dignity-based intervention plan and a more traditional behavior plan.
• Discuss nine survivor-specific, dignity-based interventions built upon a combination of behavioral treatment planning and sensory / perceptual / communicative / cognitive interventions after brain injury.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
