Description

Open Lecture - What can we learn from behaviour following brain injury? A psychologist’s perspective

Presenter: Dr Sarah Crawford, Consultant Clinical Neuro Psychologist, Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability

Severe brain injury can cause a wide range of difficulties including changes in physical, sensory, cognitive and communication abilities. As a result of this, people with such brain injuries are often unable to reflect on their own needs and communicate these to others and therefore they are dependent on other people to infer these. One important method of doing this is by learning what we can from the person’s behaviour. This lecture will describe some of the behaviours that are commonly seen in these patients, including passive as well as active behaviours. It will outline some of the ways that psychologists observe and understand these behaviours, and how we would determine what type of interventions would be of most benefit to the patient and their family. The benefits and challenges of multi-disciplinary working will be briefly discussed.
