TEST CHILD

This online course is based on the 2022 Wisconsin Brain Injury Conference, hosted by the Brain Injury Alliance of Wisconsin, SOAR Fox Cities, and the UW–Madison Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership.  Testimonies from the conference: 

"The conference helped me to bring in new ways of working with families while we are caring for their loved one and insight the patients are feeling. It has helped me to look at creating new programs for our program for the patients. With this conference it has helped me to gain insight into brain injury as a whole." 

"All of the topics discussed this year were wide ranging and informative. Working in the employment sector, learning more about other supports someone with a TBI can benefit from helps to give the whole scope of how best to support someone with a TBI in recovery and healing."

PRACTICE GAP AND NEEDS

Kalli Reinheimer, MSW, CSW, CBIS

Kalli Reinheimer worked in the field of brain injury for 22 years. It was during that work that Kalli learned about trauma informed care (TIC) and became interested in a correlation between childhood trauma, the (sometimes) risky behaviors that precipitated the TBI and difficult behaviors some survivors of TBI displayed in rehab and day programming. This interest led to Kalli to becoming a (TIC) trainer and assisting with training the entire staff of her previous employer. Kalli has since moved on from working with survivors of TBI and is no longer an official TIC trainer, however, her passion for this work hasn’t waned. She is now the VP of Programs for Easterseals Southeast Wisconsin and is on a mission to help her new organization become trauma informed. Kalli is married and has an 11-year-old son, energetic dog, and 4 adult stepchildren. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, reading, exercising, and watching her son play baseball.
