Understanding People Affected by Brain Injury: Practice Guidance for Social Workers and Social Care Teams

Understanding People Affected by Brain Injury: Practice Guidance for Social Workers and Social Care Teams.

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is a condition that may be seen by social workers who work in adult and children’s assessment teams, but not always as a presenting problem. This guide aims to increase awareness of ABI among social workers and provide guidance about what an ABI is and how social work intervention can benefit these individuals. The guidance links to the appropriate level of knowledge and skills as identified in the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) and the Knowledge and Skills Statement for adults and child and family social work.
