As medical knowledge has grown in the past decade, it has been able to save countless lives ravaged by perhaps the most devastating of all injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI). As these survivors fight to rebuild their lives, the medical professionals involved find new alliances being formed with other professions that can aid in understanding the challenges facing these individuals post injury. The following paper is ethnographic in its approach, looking from the point of view of an educator working along side medical professionals in the field of cognitive rehabilitation. Hopefully, this paper will offer both professions different insights into this emerging field, and allow all of us to see the human condition in a new light.

Assistant Professor, Educational Psychology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

I have worked with individual’s with TBI in both Canada and the United States as both a front line educator and academic researcher for over 15 years. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in Educational Psychology and Special Education at Cal State-San Bernardino, Minnesota State University, and now at the University of Saskatchewan. My research focuses on the brain’s ability to retain memory by the use of emotionally laden curriculum, particularly the link between memory and visual stimuli.
