BISWG Trustee, Dr Mark Holloway has contributed a chapter to a new book entitled, The Care Act 2014: Wellbeing in Practice.

Tuesday 8th October 2019

This is believed to be the first chapter in a mainstream social work book about working with individuals and families affected by ABI. It has long been our shared experience that statutory social workers are frequently ill-trained and very under-supported to work with people affected by ABI. This can cause difficulties and conflicts which are not helpful for any party. Dr Holloway's aim in writing this chapter was to try and unpick the reasons behind the difficulties experienced and suggest ways forward.

 

 

The Chapter is called Hidden in plain sight: Social work, acquired brain injury and missed opportunities for change, Holloway, M. (2019) 

 

 

The full details of the book are as follows:
