This program will begin with a review of brain injury and the global impact of brain injury on cognition, emotions, behavior, and physical function. Concepts related to how the global impacts of brain injury affect the ability to successfully transition to competitive employment or alternate options for engagement in productive activity will be discussed. The components of transitional work programming as it relates to persons experiencing the global effects of brain injury will be explored, including more traditional comprehensive evaluation and intervention, functional job analysis, functional capacity evaluation, work conditioning, simulated work, work-site intervention and employer/employee education.
