Building Self-Esteem after Brain Injury

Articles in this category are written to help the individual living with a brain injury to re-build a relationship with themselves.

As we build a relationship with ourselves and gain a sense of self we gain the power to follow our dreams. Follow our dreams in ways that work for us. In the process we learn how to relate to other people in ways that work for us. In the process, we build self-esteem. Although our relationships may have changed, we discover the value of having a relationship with ourselves.
