Concussion Recovery Group: Online Workshop

Welcome to the Concussion Recovery Group! Join us online to connect with others who have experienced concussions and are on the path to recovery. Whether you're an athlete, a student, or simply someone who has had a concussion (or mild traumatic brain injury), this group is here to provide support, share experiences, and offer valuable advice.

Our online platform allows you to participate from the comfort of your own home. Share your story, learn from others, and discover helpful strategies for managing symptoms and promoting healing. We believe in the power of community and the importance of understanding during the recovery process.

Together, we can navigate the challenges of concussion recovery and provide each other with the encouragement and support needed to get back on track. Join the Concussion Recovery Group today and take the next step towards a healthier, happier future!

Registration is open to adult residents of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Northwest Territories, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. On request, Dr. Newton will provide confirmation of attendance and a detailed invoice that can be submitted for reimbursement to your extended health insurance plan or motor vehicle accident insurance plan.

Participants will need access to a stable internet connection and the ability to use Zoom with an enabled web camera and microphone. To get the most out of this group, you should be willing to engage in group discussions and able to practice the suggested strategies on your own between sessions.

Optimize Your Brain Flow: 6-Part Online Workshop

‘Brain flow’ refers to a peak mental state that includes a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, effortless performance, and enjoyment. This state of flow can be disrupted by exposure to increased physical, emotional, or cognitive stress, which causes us to become distracted, disorganized, forgetful, and moody. If the stress continues, the brain slows down and feels sluggish, and our level of motivation and productivity starts to decline. If this sounds familiar, you might be feeling stuck or trapped by work stress, family relationships, or major life transitions. Or, you might be experiencing a stress-related medical condition, postconcussion syndrome, or a somatic symptom disorder.

In this interactive six-part online workshop, learn practical strategies for managing mental fog, burnout, and feelings of overwhelm. We will discuss the roles of the central nervous system and the brain’s prefrontal cortex in activating physical, emotional, and cognitive symptoms of stress. Then we will explore proven methods for improving your brain’s resilience, increasing your physical and mental endurance, and regaining as sense of control and self-sufficiency.

This workshop will take place every Thursday for six weeks, beginning on October 19, 2023. Each session will be 90 minutes in length.

Registration is open to adults (18 years of age or older) in any region who have access to a stable internet connection and the ability to use Zoom with an enabled web camera and microphone. To get the most out of this workshop, you should be open to changing unhelpful behaviours and habits, willing to engage in group discussions, and able to practice the suggested strategies on your own between sessions.

Workshop sessions will be presented by Dr. Virginia Newton, a Registered Psychologist with a practice in Clinical Neuropsychology. Participants who are residents of Alberta, Manitoba, or Northwest Territories will also have the opportunity to schedule separate individual sessions with Dr. Newton for cognitive testing, biofeedback/neurofeedback, hypnotherapy, and/or neuropsychological counselling. Details can be found on the Newton Neuropsychology website.
