SCI Forum Schedule
Tuesday, October 13, 2015, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Resilience, Depression and Bouncing Back after SCI
By Charles Bombardier, PhD, professor and psychologist in the UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine
Although most people with SCI do not become depressed, it is important to identify and help those who do. This talk will focus on who gets depressed after SCI, when and why. Dr. Bombardier will cover what is known about common patterns of adjustment after SCI and how emotional responses to SCI compare to other forms of loss and trauma. He will discuss risk factors for depression and what can be done to manage and treat depression after SCI. Adjustment and mental health problems after SCI can be complicated and sometimes difficult to talk about. We invite you to learn more at this forum and bring your questions.
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet! Meet in the hospital cafeteria directly outside the conference rooms to socialize, network and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the forum. No RSVP—just show up! Please call 206-685-3999 or email email@example.com if you would like directions or additional information.
