You will be provided with a foundation of understanding related to this level of recovery, as well as practical suggestions and applications when working with individuals currently at this level of recovery. Progressing through recovery periods of confusion, Post Traumatic Amnesia (PTA), and increasing awareness and independence will be explored.
