In February, 2011 VBP ran a workshop at the VA Hospital in the Polytrauma/Traumatic Brain Injury outpatient program. In close collaboration for over a year, VA Recreation Therapist Casey Linstad and Monica created a workshop process fitting for the bookmakers in the Polytrauma / TBI program. Twice a week throughout the month of February, authors gathered at the VA to make their books. The workshop went very well, word spread quickly within the VA and many people want to be a part of it. Now the VBP, Casey and Monica are working hard to find time and resources to create a program and training manual to ensure the continuity of the project at the VA Hospital.
