BISWG Trustee Dr Mark Holloway is co-author of a new book Family Experience of Brain Injury: Surviving, Coping, Adjusting (from the After Brain Injury: Survivor Stories series)

The book is a collaboration between family members of people affected by brain injury and professionals who have worked in the field, alongside family, for many years. The intention is to provide an opportunity for those hidden and marginalised voices of family members who are in for the long haul, often dismissed by services and sometimes left to cope in isolation.

 

It is hoped the book is helpful for professionals and families affected by brain injury and that you can also utilise it to help explain the family experience to professionals who are often lacking in knowledge of brain injury and the impact it has upon family.
