Practice Guidance for Social Workers working with people with an
acquired brain injury
The Brain Injury Social Work Group (BISWG) and the British Association
of Social Workers (BASW) have developed a piece of practice guidance
to assist social workers who may be working with people with an ABI
where this is not a presenting problem.
The guidance aims to increase awareness among social workers of the
condition and to provide advice about what an acquired brain injury is
and how social work intervention can help. It also links to the
appropriate level of knowledge and skills as identified in the
Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) and the Knowledge and Skills
Statement for adults and child and family social work.
