Trainings

Project BRAIN staff are experts in providing education, supports and services on brain injury and have put together trainings that can be altered to meet the needs of any audience. Check out some of our most common trainings, as well as additional nationwide trainings from our friends! 

 

Brain Injury 101 was created for everyone interested in brain injuries, including educators, families, and community members. The sessions are designed for early childhood through transition after high school and provides an overview of brain injuries, including the signs and symptoms typically experienced, returning to learn and play, and laws and guidelines put into place with Tennessee. 

 

Pediatric Brain Injury Resources is a brain injury overview of what a brain injury is; how common these injuries are; what signs and sympotoms parents, teachers, coaches and healthcare providers need to be aware of; and where to go to for help.

 

Project BRAIN has collaborated with The Center on Brain Injury and Training (CBIRT) to expand the awareness of brain injuries and different resources available to the public. CBIRT offers an In the Classroom Series that is an evidenced-based training intended for teachers but extends to the entire school staff. The training is $99 and includes 22 mini-lessons focused on helping the staff meet the learning challenges that can be accompanied with a concussion or brain injury.

CBIRT also provides educational trainings on various topics regarding brain injuries that be found on their recorded webinars page.

 

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) developed the HEADS UP program with the goal of protecting children and adolescents by raising awareness and providing information regarding concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Through HEADS UP, the CDC provides free online training courses for clinicians, youth sport coaches, and high school sports coaches.

 

In the state of Tennessee, there is a list of trainings that fit the requirements of the TN Sports Concussion Law. Listed through the site is ConcussionWise, an online database with engaging and interactive concussion training courses for athletic trainers, physicians, coaches, parents, and athletes.
