Understanding Brain Injury

Description

Hello, thanks for stopping by to check out this course.

  • Has someone you care about suffered brain injury? 
  • Are you finding it difficult to know how best to help them? 
  • Can't quite understand what is causing the physical symptoms and behaviour? 
  • Struggling to cope with day to day activities? 
  • Is  life now more demanding and tiresome for everyone? 
  • Are there significant changes in engagement, independence and relationships? 
  • Want to learn practical solutions to improve quality of life for you and them?

If you're a carer looking for  an inside track on how to support your loved one and cope with day to  day tasks, a student planning to work in the care field, or a member of support staff working with brain injured clients, wanting to promote greater value and meaning to their lives, then this is the course for you.

I'm Debbie, an Occupational Therapist who works with individuals and their families who are struggling to cope with significant changes from major trauma, disease or disability. 

OTs adopt a holistic approach to rehab and are trained in physical and mental health. I've been in OT for many years. I can offer you real insight from over 30 years worth of hands on experience in a range of clinical settings both in the UK and US, and from supporting people successfully in their own homes. I would like to share some of my experience and knowledge with you. 

I aim to empower people to maximise their independence and safety, restore meaningful activity and enhance relationships throughout life. 

By taking this course, I will provide you with a basic understanding about the brain and its functions, give better insight about how injury can effect that and suggest practical solutions and tools you can use to enhance interactions and working relationships long term.
