The 41st Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference

Practical Solutions to Real World Problems

Do you work with survivors of brain injuries?  If so, then you know how brain injuries bring on unique challenges not only for survivors but also for the professionals committed to helping them.  Would you like to learn more about empirically-based evaluation and treatment techniques that will help you practice more effectively? 

Known informally as the “Williamsburg” Brain Injury Conference, the annual Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference provides a thought-provoking opportunity to learn and interact alongside leading national- and internationally-recognized experts. Past presenters have included luminaries in the rehabilitation field, such as: Rodger Wood, Neil Brooks, Jim Malec, Rick Parente and Erin Bigler, Ph.D.. This conference provides a unique focus on practical solutions and interventions to improve brain injury rehabilitation practice. Conference events span three days, including two day-long preconference workshops, and the two-day long main conference. Topics are relevant for a variety of rehabilitation professionals, including psychologists, counselors, social workers, case managers, CBIS, OT, PT, SLP, and physicians. Continuing education (CEU) credits are available for a number of disciplines. Set in historic Williamsburg, Virginia, the conference also provides the unique opportunity to explore our nation’s heritage and history in Colonial Williamsburg.
