Heads Up Webinar Series - FREE CEUs
Psychological Recovery Following Stroke
Wednesday, May 25, 12:00-1:15 pm
Following a stroke, individuals may experience physical, sensory, cognitive, behavioral and emotional impairments. When stroke patients do not receive adequate support for psychological effects of stroke, it can hinder recovery and reduce one’s motivation to pursue rehabilitation. An increased focus on psychological care following a stroke can improve one’s recovery and improve overall quality of life.
After this webinar you will be able to:
– Describe common neuropsychiatric symptoms that occur within different stroke syndromes
– Identify risk factors associated with post-stroke depression.
– Recognize factors that affect recovery from post-stroke depression.
– Describe interventions associated with psychological recovery and adjustment following stroke.
This presentation will feature special guest Brian Propp. Seven years ago, a massive stroke the left former Philadelphia Flyer and 5-Time NHL All-Star with mobility and speech difficulties. Despite the physical and psychological challenges he faced, his fiercely positive attitude and expert transdisciplinary team helped get him back on the ice – and back to his life – just 18 months later. Join us to hear Brian’s story as he recounts his inspirational journey back to the game of life!
