- Dec 19, 2018
- Latest Events
The UK's largest brain injury conference takes place again on the 16th May 2019 at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London.
This professional conference by ABI Solutions, is aimed at rehabilitation providers, lawyers, case managers, therapists, and academics will explore the family experience of acquired brain injury, including what family members say they need and what works for them.
Throughout the day we will examine how we might alter our practice to accommodate their needs, respond appropriately to the trauma experienced by the whole family and ensure our intervention also facilitates family adjustment.
Drawing on the existing evidence base and current research the presentations today will endeavour to address these issues, and delegates will:
gain a greater appreciation of the reality of the family experience
consider the factors underpinning the impact of trauma on family members
develop an understanding of the concept of stress on family members, ambiguous loss, emotional overload and burden of care
link research to practice in helping the family cope in everyday life
learn how services can support the development of family resilience and adjustment
understand the concept of the expert companion in supporting needs over time
engage in the development of a structured narrative for families living in ambiguous circumstances
reflect upon how their knowledge, experience and expectations affect interactions with family members
There will be opportunities throughout the day to share experience, learn from each other and be inspired by the stories told and the research presented.
