Resilience and Individualized Community Integration Interventions for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injuries
Résilience et intervention citoyenne personnalisée d'intégration dans la communauté pour les personnes ayant un traumatisme cranien
Investigators, caregivers, administrators and service users in the field of rehabilitation are increasingly interested in the concept of resilience, but the literature has very little to offer on interventions aimed at supporting the resilience of persons and their loved ones. This article describes the Personnalized Accompagnement Community Integration (ICII), which is intended to support the resilience of persons with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). An ICII implementation is currently underway and is expected to support social participation and stimulate the resilience of persons with TBIs. It is based on four frames of reference: community integration founded on the person’s perception of their community integration, the ecosystemic model, the handicap production process (HPP) model, and the goal-setting process. ICII adopts an intervention perspective centered on the life plan of the person with a TBI.
