School/Work Re-entry

Returning to school or work is often a big adjustment for a burn survivor. BRSG understands this process.

Our staff works with the burn survivor to ease the transition back to school or work by educating classmates, teachers, and co-workers about the issues burn survivors face.

We are available to:

  • Create a supportive and accepting work or classroom environment for the burn survivor.
  • Provide education about burn injuries.
  • Give classmates and co-workers the opportunity to ask questions about burn injuries and express their fears and concerns.
  • Intervene when a burn survivor is experiencing teasing, stares, and other negative reactions from classmates or co-workers.
  • Offer practical tips for how to respond to stares and comments.

Burns Recovered provides school/work re-entry presentations while the burn-injured patient is in the hospital to help others have a better understanding of what the patient is going through. We can also provide support when it is time for the survivor to return to school/work.
