Promoting  “best practices”
in brain injury research,
education, resource facilitation and
vocational rehabilitation...

RF Research & Training Center 

The RF Research & Training Center (RTC) was created in 2016 and is a direct result of the RHI Resource Facilitation Department's sucesses in the areas of brain injury and vocational rehabilitation. These successes along with many new requests and opportunities, have led to the creation of the RTC.

Not only is Resource Facilitation evidenced-based -- we have produced the evidence and turned it into practice. Improving outcome for people with brain injury takes a village, a reality that becomes a challenge when resources and capacities may be very limited or absent. As such, our mission is to build statewide and national capacity to achieve evidence-based vocational outcomes for people with brain injury through research, training and education.

Why you should attend:
As many as 60% of people who are incarcerated have a history of brain injury, and perhaps as many as 95% of veterans. Brain injury is a risk factor for incarceration, and people with brain injury have more difficulties with prison adjustment. Proper diagnosis and management is likely to improve adjustment and may improve post-release adjustment and decrease recidivism. This first-of-a-kind conference will address all of these topics and enable people working in the Indiana criminal justice system to identify brain injury, determine its potential consequences as a cause of criminal conduct, and to make appropriate referrals for our common clientele.

Who should attend:
Department of Corrections staff and medical providers, judges, prosecutors, public defenders, private practice attorneys.

Continuing Education:
We have applied for continuing education for the following professions: Physicians, Psychologists, Attorneys, Nurses and Social Workers. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit by Indiana University School of Medicine.
