1. Coaching Student Veterans and Service Members with TBI: Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC), a Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury center, is offering a free webinar as part of its “Hot Topics in Traumatic Brain Injury” webinar series. The webinar is entitled “Coaching Student Veterans and Service Members with TBI.”
Date and Time: Wednesday, September 11, 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
Student veterans and service members with traumatic brain injury (TBI) experience unique challenges as they navigate college and community life. In this webinar, participants will learn about “dynamic coaching” in which clinicians act as coaches who model and instruct clients to use self-regulation. Coaching occurs within three evidence-based domains or areas of need: self-learning, self-organizing and self-advocacy. In these domains, participants will learn how to collaborate with clients to identify goals, create plans, select strategies, track performance and make adjustments. The speakers will emphasize coaching that prepares clients to attend college and supports them while they are there. Participants also will learn to use goal attainment scaling to create person-centered outcomes. Additional resources will be provided for clinicians working with student veterans and service members with TBI. At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be better able to describe how coaching:
- Uses self-regulation to elicit strategic thinking
- Differs from more traditional and intensive therapy
- Leads to higher levels of performance in school and the community

2. The National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention – Webinar I
The Children’s Safety Network (CSN) is offering a free series of webinars. The first webinar of this four-part series is called “The National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention – Webinar I.”
Date and Time: Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 2:00- 3:00 PM (EDT)
In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), NationalCenter for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) released the National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention (NAP). Based on the public health model, the NAP framework provides a vision which guides actions and explores the role of federal, state, local, public, and private partners in the prevention of childhood injury. This four part webinar series, brought to you by the Children’s Safety Network (CSN) National Injury and ViolencePreventionResourceCenter and The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), will explore four of the NAP’s domains: 1) Data and Surveillance, 2) Education, 3) Policy and 4) Communication.
Speakers: During this first webinar, Dr. Julie Gilchrist of the NationalCenter for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) will provide a quick overview of the NAP and review the NAP’s data and surveillance domain and its implications for local health departments.
The next speaker will be Dr. George Bahouth from CSN’s Economics and Data Analysis Resource Center about the data that is available from CSN. Our final speaker will be from a local health department about their strategies, challenges and successes for addressing data and surveillance of injury in their community.
Learning Objectives: During this webinar, participants will:
- Increase understanding of the NAP and its recommendations around data and surveillance
- Increase awareness of existing data that supports the NAP
- Learn about resources available through CSN and NCIPC
- Learn about the challenges of accessing local data
- Learn about a specific local data and surveillance strategies
