RHI invites family caregivers and anyone touched by traumatic brain injury (TBI) to interact over the Internet with the video images of a RHI neuropsychologist, a family caregiver, and a survivor of brain injury, all of whom have valuable knowledge, experience, and insights to share about brain injury.
Three voice-activated, interactive programs in the Virtual Conversations® TBI Series provide a unique opportunity for you to conduct simulated conversations with experts who are available to share their knowledge and insights about TBI. After each conversation, you will be able to provide feedback in a brief online survey regarding your virtual dialogue experience.
What equipment do I need? You will need a PC or an Apple computer, a high-speed broadband Internet connection, and either the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser or the Google Chrome browser installed.
I’m interested. How do I access the programs? To access the programs, simply click on the link below. That will take you to the website of Interactive Drama Inc., the developer of the programs. Further instructions and helpful information will be provided there.
The Virtual Conversations® TBI Series was developed by Interactive Drama with a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at the National Institutes of Health, SBIR grant HD31797, “Education for Family Caregivers of the Brain Injured.”
