A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)
Acquired brain damage is a potentially severe condition at any age, and especially so for older people. It is therefore vital that professionals know the best interventions.
This course examines acquired brain damage in older adults, the effect it can have and what can most usefully be done about it. It therefore covers neuro-anatomy and medical intervention but its prime focus is on psychological treatment methods and, to this end, utilises case studies and practice of the relevant methods.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of this course.
Average Presentation rating: 96%
Average Relevance rating: 94%
