WHAT IS BRAIN INJURY? INFORMATION AND TRAINING SESSION FOR PROFESSIONALS

This training course is for those working with a person with brain Injury, their carer(s) or family in a professional capacity.

During this course you will learn to recognise the physical, psychological, cognitive and executive effects of ABI. The training will help you be aware of the ways people can be supported to cope with those effects whilst you engage with them.

This course will:

Help you to be able to understand how the brain works.

How a brain injury affects the brain.

How a Brain Injury affects the person.

How to give support to cope with the effects.
