In the Pursuit of Growth and Learning: Certified Brain Injury Specialists at Success Rehabilitation

At Success Rehabilitation, Inc our culture is defined by a set of Core Values, particularly the value of “pursue growth and learning”. This is best personified in our commitment to the Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) program.

In 1996, the Brain Injury Association of America established the Academy of Certified Brain Specialists (ACBIS) to meet the training needs for persons providing brain injury services.  The CBIS certificate program has a comprehensive curriculum that covers such relevant topics as: cognitive, psychological, and social consequences of brain injury; behavioral approaches for managing challenging behaviors and promoting positive skills; and techniques for effective work with families.

Success Rehabilitation, Inc has championed the program since its inception and has made it available to all employees for over twelve years. Leading the way are Mary Cowgill, Assistant Director of Neuro-Rehabilitative Services and Licensed Psychologist who is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist Trainer (CBIST), and Ronnie Pozzi, Corporate Liaison. Both individuals have years of experience providing brain injury services. Because of their efforts, Success Rehabilitation, Inc currently has 56 individuals who are CBIS certified. Through comprehensive and on-going trainings, the team at Success is equipped to provide services to individuals with brain injury that are grounded in scientific research and appropriate to meet the needs of the population we serve.
