Riding the Rapids - negotiating the challenges of life after brain injury

All day
Central Hall Westminster
Storey's Gate, Westminster, London SW1H 9NH
HeadFirst Conference 2017 As experienced practitioners in the field of brain injury, all of us know better than to expect a totally smooth ride… Challenges arise as a consequence of the very nature of brain injury; the dynamic balance between engaging and empowering the client whilst also keeping them safe. As professionals, travelling with the client on their journey through life, we also face our own challenges, often against a backdrop of limited resources, in addressing conflicting expectations, perspectives, needs and demands of the systems and individuals around the client. Presentations throughout the day are designed to assist us with negotiating these challenges, and include family perspectives, time-perception and client engagement, as well as hot topics such as decision-making, risk-taking, social media and sex. As always there will be opportunities engage with exhibitors and colleagues and we hope everyone comes away feeling inspired, with plenty of food for thought, and with some new resources and ideas for practice, ultimately making the ongoing journey of supporting our clients somewhat smoother, if still exciting!
