Understanding Brain Injury Training

Headway Derby offers training in issues that affect people living with brain injury and their families and carers. The training programme can be individualised to the needs of the attendees, but has a foundation of ‘understanding brain injury’.

Our Understanding Brain Injury courses can be delivered to professionals, carers and anyone interested in the issues related to sustaining and surviving traumatic brain injury.

The course looks at the anatomy and physiology of the brain, what happens in brain injury and the physical, cognitive and social consequences of brain injury for the individual, families and carers. The course is also designed to help anyone who wants to learn more about the basic facts about brain injury in addition to some helpful techniques to use when communicating with people who are living with an acquired brain injury and their families/carers.
