Beyond Surviving: Tools for Thriving After Burn Injury

Life Strategies to be Comfortable, Confident, and Competent

Facing the world after surviving a burn injury can be challenging.  For survivors with physical differences and disabilities, re-joining their community can lead to great anxiety.  We are often unprepared for the reaction of others to our 'new' appearance.

'Beyond Surviving: Tools for Thriving' offers children, teens and adults social skills tools for social freedom and control. 

Specific strategies teach survivors and families the skills to use when faced with stares, questions, setting boundaries, and feeling uncertain in school , work, or social situations.  Beyond Surviving, Tools for Thriving:  STEPS Graphic
