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.
