Brain Injury and Substance Abuse: The Cross-Training Advantage

On receipt of a funding grant from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, a project team of providers from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Toronto) and the Toronto Acquired Brain Injury Network met to develop an educational resource for providers working in the fields of Brain Injury and Substance Abuse.

The team developed a video and supporting manual about cross-training advantages in the fields of Brain Injury and Substance Abuse.

The purpose is to:

  • enhance understanding of the functional relationships between Brain Injury and Substance Abuse
  • improve the identification, assessment and treatment of people with both Brain Injury and Substance Abuse problems
  • Increase collaboration between providers in both fields to facilitate more integrated programming.

Additional information can be found on the Substance Use/Brain Injury Bridging Project website - http://www.subi.ca

The Manual
The accompanying manual is available here as a free download.

The manual is free and may be copied as free of charge.

On May 13th, 2020, we were scheduled to offer our annual Compassion Fatigue Conference. An event that always provided a way for Gluckstein Lawyers to give back to the community through relevant and engaging presenters, networking opportunities and practical takeaways.
Unfortunately, this year we were unable to hold our event, needing to cancel it as part of Covid-19 social distancing requirements. We, along with our planned attendees, were all so disappointed, especially feeling like if there was ever a year where we needed come Compassion Fatigue resources and supports, this was the year.

As a way of trying to give back somehow instead of our live conference, we decided to host a virtual CF webinar with Dr. Parmjit Singh, to present to our registrants about how to manage extreme stress during a crisis.
We are happy to share that the webinar has now been uploaded to our Gluckstein Lawyers YouTube channel.

We plan to offer more webinars soon from a variety of speakers and we hope to continue providing support and resources related to Compassion Fatigue in one form or another. Stay tuned for more information!
