Publisher's summary

An important book for anyone impacted by brain injury. Author and brain injury survivor Carole Starr describes the journey in ways that survivors, caregivers, and professionals will relate to and learn from. Tips and strategies include:

  • Recognizing what acceptance is/isn’t and why it’s important for brain injury survivors
  • Getting through the challenging first year after brain injury
  • Moving past denial
  • Coping with the loss of one’s old life and sense of self
  • Creating a new life as a brain injury survivor
  • Documenting and celebrating progress
  • Responding to insensitive comments by others
  • Finding something positive in the negative that is brain injury
  • Letting go of the past and moving forward.

This title includes a workbook PDF, with questions that encourage listeners to take Carole’s strategies and apply them to their own experience. These questions can be answered on one’s own, with family members, with rehabilitation professionals, or with a brain injury support group.

To Root and to Rise is a powerful resource for anyone living with a traumatic brain injury, post-concussion syndrome, stroke, brain tumor, or other brain trauma, for family caregivers and friends of brain injury survivors, for brain injury support groups, and for medical and neuro-rehabilitation professionals.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
