Training for Professionals
Health care workers in the community may have limited experience working with brain injury survivors or may need assistance finding appropriate resources for their patients. The Program Director offers individual consultations to social service and health care providers. Our staff also makes educational presentations to other agencies to promote understanding of the unique characteristics and critical needs of this expanding disability population.

Concussion Information & Education
In response to growing public concern about the effects of youth concussions, Schurig Center has partnered with the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) and California Pacific Regional Rehabilitation Center (CPRRC) to create a concussion information website, concussionmarin.org. The website is a user-friendly information portal providing education about concussions, treatment options, videos, and online training courses for coaches. The goal of the site is to improve identification of concussions and assist athletes, parents, teachers, coaches, and medical professionals in the evaluation and management process. Coaches can access online training courses established in new California concussion laws, AB25 and AB1451. In addition, parents can obtain information and a list of valuable questions to ask their doctor if a child has sustained a concussion, or if a concussion is suspected.
