Session 2 – The brain and brain injury

Use the plastic model of the brain for this session. After the orientation, recap the first session, especially the group rules. Next, move on to explaining what our brains do, including discussing the hemispheres and what each lobe does. Then, move onto the different causes of brain injury. Now, have the members write about their own brain injury within the workbook, after which this information can be shared with the group and written on the flip-chart. Finally, the group is encouraged to think about what changes they have experienced since their brain injury. Before the end of the group, recap what has been learnt.
