Jack Sisson's TBI Blog

A hug is duct tape for the soul.

Last week we received this email from Bancroft. We'd never heard of them, but noticed that they are located in the same New Jersey town as some of our family members. After looking into who they are and what they do, we think this information could be helpful to some of our readers.
 "I wanted to bring to your attention to a series of monthly webinars Bancroft will be hosting to share its expertise in rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injuries. Specifically designed for case managers, social workers, rehabilitation therapists and other brain injury professionals, the webinars will afford participants the opportunity to learn – and earn continuing education units – remotely, rather than having to make time to attend in-person seminars."
This series of monthly webinars, titled “Heads-Up,” will provide
participants with a convenient opportunity to learn – and earn
continuing education units (CEUs) – during their lunch hour. Unlike a
traditional seminar, webinars will be presented online and viewed via
one’s own computer.

The next webinar is Exercise and Effects on the Brain on Wednesday, November 16 from 12
– 1 pm

 Exercise and Effects on the Brain will address:

• Health benefits of exercise
• Types of exercise: strength training, balance training, pain
management, range of motion
• Factors influencing progress: motivation, impulsivity, safety
• Research on exercise and neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to
reorganize itself and adapt to change

To register for Exercise and Effects on the Brain, visit:

These complimentary webinars are each approved for one continuing
education unit from the Commission for Case Manager Certification.
CEUs are pending from the National Association of Social Workers.
Participants must register in advance, as space is limited. For more
information, call Lynn Tomaio at (856) 515-6454 or email
