ASSBI has developed a publishing arm in order to publish new, ecologically valid, clinically useful resources for both assessment and treatment of disorders following brain impairment.
We would be interested in hearing from members who may have ideas of potential resources such as tests and treatment manuals for development. Any resource published by ASSBI is empirically based and will be subject to peer review prior to acceptance.
We are also interested to hear from anyone who may have already developed resources (tests, manuals, normative data, etc) that are freely available and that may be of use to our members.
ASSBI Resources is excited to announce its latest intervention resource. PEPA, developed by our President Professor Emerita Robyn Tate along with Donna Wakim, Linda Sigmundsdottir, Wendy Longley and Michelle Genders. PEPA is a manualised approach to help clients with brain injury increase their engagement and participation in activities that they find meaningful. PEPA is a complete manual that provides the steps a clinician can take to assess their client, and then systematically help their client work towards an activity goal over an intensive five week period (with further goals thereafter as appropriate). PEPA is suitable to be used by any qualified and experienced health professional (e.g., neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, rehabilitation counsellor) with knowledge about brain injury. It is designed specifically for people with brain injury who have not been able to return to paid employment and who wish to increase their level of everyday activity, including recreation and social activity.
In another initiative, we have partnered with eValorix, a Canadian on-line company, to sell our MEC manual. Hopefully, this will provide a greater reach for this ASSBI Resource and is a toe in the water for us in terms of trying out international distribution networks.
We are now selling video files (MP4s) of previously recorded Workshops and Webinars
