Brain Injury Education Workshops

Education workshops aim to help people understand the impact of acquired brain injury and to introduce compensatory strategies to help maximise function.

Jo or one of the specialist Rehab Team will explain and provide strategies to support living well with acquired brain injury, more commonly known as ABI.

The weekly education topics cover the cognitive skills impacted by an ABI, such as attention, memory and information processing, and executive skills such as decision making, planning, problem solving, insight and emotional regulation. Physical, communication or behavioural difficulties are also discussed.

Jo will talk you through explanatory educational slides which accompany the session, giving examples and solutions to problems that you may encounter, helping you to think about your own situation and how best to deal with things, and learning from hearing how others cope.  The sessions include interactive process training tasks to practise some cognitive skills.  Different strategies will be discussed in order to improve your well being and independence.
