Do You Struggle with Social Interactions after Burn Injury?

The way people react (verbally and non-verbally) can make it more difficult to feel confident during social interactions. While some burn survivors are not bothered by the reactions of others, you may find it helpful to learn social skills to face these challenges successfully. This slideshow addresses these and other issues related to social interactions after a burn injury.
