Homeless Link are providing a free webinar session about brain related issues in homelessness settings. This session will cover Acquired Brain Injury, Autism Spectrum Disorders and ways of working with people who have had early traumatic experiences.
It is increasingly clear that understanding of how the brain is injured or altered is a key skill for people who work in homelessness settings. This session will introduce the subject, compare the approaches, and provide some top tips on what to do next in your work to address them.
Leigh Andrews, Committee Member for ABIL and Founder of Change Communication, will present information about Acquired Brain Injury and her experiences in delivering the Homelessness and Brain Injury Project coordinated by St Mungo’s. Liza Dresner from Resources for Autism, will speak about Autism Spectrum Disorders, with Emma Williamson, Thames Reach, and Jo Prestige of Homeless Link covering Trauma Informed Care and Psychologically Informed Environments.
This session will be useful for anyone working in street outreach, hostels and day services for people who are homeless. People who are not working in the homelessness sector, but are interested in these issues are welcome too!
The webinar will be live from London at 3pm on Thursday 9 November 2017 and booking is via Eventbrite
