Code: BH/22/0713 Carers and Families of Brain Injury Survivors

These sessions are kindly provided by the Sussex Acquired Brain Injury Forum (SABIF). The SABIF aims to develop a clearer understanding of acquired brain injury (ABI) within the ABI community in Sussex for the benefit of people with brain injury in all its forms.

Five events are planned, led by experienced professionals and stakeholders. This will give you the perspective of neuropsychology, occupational therapy, social work, lived experience, law and more.

The sessions are

·         Carers and families of brain injury survivors

·        Care Act assessments of brain injury survivors

·        Psycho-social issues following a brain injury

·        Mental capacity, ABI and social work

·        A round table discussion about how we can develop social work practice for people with an ABI.

The recent ‘James’ Safeguarding Adults Review highlights the importance of training to staff working with people with ABI and this is a great opportunity to develop your understanding of this complex topic. You can attend as many of the sessions as you like – please apply separately to each event you would like to attend.

Francis Lacy Scott, chair of the Sussex Acquired Brain Injury Forum says “Working with people an ABI presents professional challenges; the extent of the impact of the brain injury can be hidden, presenting challenges to assessing the impact on daily living and decision making. The SABIF is pleased to bring together leading experts in this series of events to develop understanding and enhance practice in ABI social work.”
