ABI Seminar 2012

Following the success of last year’s Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Seminar, the folks from ABI Café have decided they want to do it again! Dr. Pamela Brown, a Clinical Psychologist from the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust, will be coming to Ceartas on  Wednesday 15th May to address the subject of “Memory Problems and Changes in Identity after Brain Injury”.

ABI Café co-ordinator Pam Thomson said, “This is a great opportunity for both professionals and people living with a brain injury to get together and talk about how the clinical aspects of a brain injury can change the experience and identity of the person living with it. In order to improve brain injury care and services, it is important that professionals fully understand the personal changes that a brain injury can bring”.

Last year, Professor Tom McMillan of the University of Glasgow came and spoke about the hidden effects of brain injury, and about best practice for professionals working with people affected by brain injury. The seminar was a sell-out, and on the back of this success, ABI Café and Ceartas decided they would like to make it an annual event.

The ABI Seminar will be held at Ceartas headquarters at McGregor House in Kirkintilloch on Wednesday 15th May, from 2 – 4pm. The seminar is free, but booking is essential due to limited space. For more information, or to book a place, you can contact Pam Thomson on 0141 775 0433 or email
