Brain Injury Education Workshops

During Covid, Brain Injury Education group workshops are held on Tuesdays at 10am or 1pm via Zoom.

Education workshops aim to help the understanding of how brain injury affects a person’s thinking skills, 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.

We also offer one to one education sessions on Zoom for individuals or family groups to educate and support on individual issues.  Some people will find these more suitable than a group session. They are useful for individuals to learn more about their particular problems and consider options to improve living with their injury.  One to one sessions are also good for a spouse/partner, parents, children and family groups to understand what the person with the brain injury is going through and to learn how they can work together to support rehabilitation.
