This online resource which includes 9 sessions will explore the family experience of acquired brain injury, including what family members say they need and what works for them. These sessions 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 will endeavour to address these issues, and you 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
– familiarisation with the range and extent of family (including spouses, siblings, child relatives) needs following acquired brain injury
– appreciation of the different ‘lenses’ through which family experiences post-injury can be viewed, resulting in different opportunities for intervention and support
– 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
