Barbara Stahura, Certified Journal Facilitator, cared for her husband after his traumatic brain injury in 2003. As a result, she created a journaling program and wrote the acclaimed first journaling book for people with brain injury, After Brain Injury: Telling Your Story (Lash & Associates, 2009), which is now in use around the U.S. She has been leading these groups since 2007, first in Tucson, Arizona, and now in Evansville, Indiana. She also has presented journaling workshops for the National Guard, Washington Brain Injury Association, family caregivers, various brain injury support groups in Indiana and Illinois, equine-facilitated experiential learning groups, and others. A certified instructor of Journal to the Self®, she presents these workshops around the country. She lives in Southwestern Indiana with her husband, Ken Willingham, and both are staff for their cat, Goldie.
