Lefebvre, H., Levert, M.-J. (2005) Traumatic Brain Injury: From Suffering to Resilience, Frontières, Spring 2005, 17(2), 77-85. (In French)

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a harrowing experience not only for families, but also for health professionals who are powerless when faced with the suffering of the person with a TBI and their close ones. The grieving for the life of the person before the traumatic brain injury is of course a painful process, but is also accompanied by the potential for learning and growth, for families as well as the health professionals involved. An equal relationship based on an exchange of knowledge and expertise insures a satisfying relationship, despite the emotionally charged atmosphere. This partnership is in fact an interesting strategy, allowing for the transformation of this moment of suffering into a positive experience for families and health professionals.
