Psychotherapy Groups

When you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury or chronic illness, your world instantly turns upside down. 

Burke's Outpatient Neuropsychology Department offers specialized therapy groups, each purposefully and thoughtfully tailored to help you navigate this new and unfamiliar foreign territory. Our groups are diverse and explore many issues that impact the various stages of the rehabilitation process.

Current therapy groups for cognitive and medical challenges include:

  • Young survivors of traumatic brain injury groups
  • Cognitive remediation groups
  • Caregiver groups
  • Mindfulness groups
  • Group for people living with debilitating medical concerns

By sharing experiences, ideas, issues and worries, you will find new solutions and resources to enable you to discover ways to productively move ahead. The group will create a new sense of belonging. You will make new social connections, and quickly realize that you are NOT alone!

Each therapy group runs for 10 weeks. Some may be covered by Medicare, while others may require private payment.

Burke's Brainiacs

The Brainiacs is a group of people from the Neuropsychology Outpatient Department. They are people with diverse backgrounds who have been brought together because they share a common bond: Each person in the group is a determined survivor of a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Through weekly meetings, under the guidance of neuropsychologist Dr. Heidi Spitz, the group strives to provide members with a source of support and understanding so that they can more effectively cope with the myriad physical and emotional challenges they face daily.

The hope is to ensure that no one who is affected by the life-altering consequences of a brain injury, which can include loss of abilities, independence, personality changes, professional adjustments and changes in family structure, has to endure these traumas alone.
