Family support

We think that reinforcing and energising the family is crucial to their child’s recovery from brain injury

Throughout the process of rehabilitation we bear in mind the needs of the whole family in order to promote good family functioning.

This may include working systemically with the family to reduce psychological distress and encourage the adjustment required. The psychologist, using particular systemic ideas and techniques, will encourage conversations on themes such as loss, grief and adjustment. The treatment usually takes place face-to-face in the family home over eight to 12 sessions.
