What happens when the brain gets injured
After a brain injury many people report that they don’t fully understand what has happened to their brain and how it is likely to affect their everyday life.
In these this session, which will be led by Jean and Jenny, we will explore different kinds of brain injury and changes in thinking, emotions and behaviours that can result.
There will be the opportunity to discuss individual difficulties and we will exchange information on possible coping strategies that can be used to compensate for some of the reported difficulties.
