The Brain Injury Social Work Group and the British Association of Social Workers issued “Practical Guidance for Social Workers working with people with an acquired Brain Injury” in February 2016. The guidance can be found here.

The aim of the guide is to increase awareness of ABI among social workers and to provide guidance about what an ABI is and how intervention by social workers can benefit individuals. It also contains useful information for COP practitioners who may have clients with an ABI. The  guidance contains an interesting case study at appendix 1 which raises issues around a potential, previously undiagnosed ABI.
