Training and Development

Headway Black Country works to raise awareness and understanding of the effects of brain injury. As part of our awareness raising activities we have developed a range of training and development resources that are suitable for a range of audiences, including those whose work may include contact with brain injury survivors. Our training is suitable for carers, professionals and anyone interested in the issues related to an acquired brain injury.

These resources offer insights into the consequences of brain injury and how survivors can be supported in addressing the challenges they now face. Our training approach is flexible and content can be adjusted to address the development needs and/or interests of the audience.

These are examples of the topics that we offer:

Understanding brain injury – this covers brain injury and the physical, cognitive and social consequences of brain injury for the individual, families and carers. Outcomes - those attending will understand some basic facts about brain injury and the effects that brain injury can have on the lives of the brain injury survivor.

Challenging behaviour following acquired brain injury - this considers the causes of challenging behaviour following brain injury and some of the interventions and techniques that can help to manage challenging behaviour. Outcomes - those attending are encouraged to examine their own attitudes and behaviour and to consider the impact this may have on the modification of difficult or challenging behaviour.

Cognitive rehabilitation issues following brain injury - this reviews developments in cognitive rehabilitation following acquired brain injury and how to help the brain injury survivor relearn lost skills and develop new skills and compensatory strategies to manage some of the common cognitive impairments that follow brain injury.

Communication difficulties following brain injury - this aims to develop an understanding of changes in speech and language ability that may result from an acquired brain injury and the possible impact on independence, social and working life. It also explores communication aids and strategies that may be beneficial to service users, support workers, carers and family members.

Sex and sexuality following brain injury - Sexual and relationship problems are frequently reported following acquired brain injury and research suggests that not all of it is due to organic damage. This is an introductory course on how brain injury may affect sexuality and sexual functioning. It aims to increase knowledge about brain injury and sexuality and to develop attendee's confidence in dealing with sex and sexuality as a part of rehabilitation for survivors and their partners.
