              Encephalitis is an under recognised and under researched condition. Its sudden onset and diverse long lasting effects mean that the illness challenges people's understanding and coping resources. This book combines scholarly research and professional insights into encephalitis wi...th `the insider perspective' in the stories of those directly affected by the condition. The narrative approach shows how supporting people to tell their own story of their neurological condition can really help in their understanding of the experience. This unique book will be of huge importance to any professional involved in the care of someone with a brain injury, and the individuals and families touched by encephalitis.

              Encephalitis is a devastating condition whose impact upon people should not be underestimated. It robs people of abilities most of us take for granted, it leaves people without their loved ones, and even in those families where the person affected survives the person they once kn...ew can be dramatically changed. Life After Encephalitis provides a unique insight into the experiences of those affected by encephalitis, sharing the rich, insightful, and often powerful, narratives of survivors and family members. It shows how listening to patient and family narratives can help us to understand how they make sense of what has happened to them, and also help professionals better understand and engage with them in practice. The book will also be useful for considering narratives associated with brain injuries from other causes, for example traumatic brain injury. Life After Encephalitis will appeal to a wide range of professionals working in rehabilitation settings, and also to and survivors of encephalitis, their families, and carers.

              Life After Brain Injury: Survivors' Stories (Hardback)

              Life after Brain Injury is the first book of its kind to present the personal accounts of people who have survived an insult to the brain. The songs, paintings, and stories of survivors combine to illustrate the ups and downs that they have all encountered in their journey from p...re-injury status, to insult and post-injury rehabilitation. Wilson, Winegardner and Ashworth's focus on the patients' perspective shows how rehabilitation is an interactive process between people with brain injury, health care staff and others, and gives the survivors the chance to tell their own story. Covering the patients' life before their injury, the nature of the insult, their early treatment, and their rehabilitation, Life after Brain Injury is unique in also following survivors as they leave the rehabilitation process. Presenting practical approaches to help survivors of brain injury achieve functionally relevant and meaningful goals, Life after Brain Injury will help all those working in rehabilitation understand the principals involved in holistic brain injury rehabilitation and how these principles combined with theory and models translate into clinical practice. The book will be of great interest to Clinical Psychologists, Neuropsychologists, and anybody working with patients with TBI as well as survivors of brain injury themselves, their relatives, friends and carers.

              A Different Perspective After Brain Injury: A Tilted Point of View
               

              A Different Perspective After Brain Injury: A Tilted Point of View (Hardback)

              Whilst preparing for his travel adventures into a world he had yet to explore, Christopher Yeoh was involved in a road traffic accident and experienced something few others would be privileged to witness. Eight days in a coma, more than a year in and out of hospital and a gradual... re-introduction to the world of work. A Different Perspective of Life After Brain Injury: A Tilted Point of View is written entirely by the survivor, providing an unusually introspective and critical personal account of life following a serious blow to the head. It charts the initial insult, early rehabilitation, development of understanding, the return of emotion, moments of triumph and regression into depression, the exercise of reframing how a brain injury is perceived and a return to work. It also describes the mental adjustments of awareness and acceptance alongside the physical recovery process. Readily accessible to the general public, this book will also be of particular interest to professionals involved in the care of people who have had significant brain injuries, brain injury survivors, their families and friends and also those who fund and organise health and social care. It is hoped that the author's account will provide a degree of understanding of what living with a hidden disability is really like.

              Rebuilding Life after Brain Injury: Dreamtalk tells the survival story of Sheena McDonald, who 20 years ago was hit by a van and suffered a very severe brain injury. Sheena's story is told from her own, personal standpoint and also from two further unique and invaluable perspecti...ves. Allan Little, a BBC journalist and now Sheena's husband, describes both the physical and mental impact of the injury on himself and Sheena. Gail Robinson, Sheena's neuropsychological rehabilitation specialist, provides professional commentaries on Sheena's condition, assessments and recovery process. The word Dreamtalk, created by Allan to describe Sheena's once hallucinogenic state, sets the tone for this book. It humanises and contextualises the impact of brain injury, providing support and encouragement for patients, professionals and families. It presents exclusive insights into each stage of recovery, spanning coma, altered consciousness, post-traumatic amnesia and rehabilitation; all showing how she has defied conventional clinical expectations and made an exceptional recovery. This is valuable reading to those who have suffered a brain injury and also to professionals such as neurologists, neuropsychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists working in the field.

              At the age of twenty eight Gary was assaulted by a gang with baseball bats and a hammer, resulting in several skull fractures and severe brain damage. For nineteen months he had little awareness of his surroundings before he started to show some recovery. This inspirational book ...documents his exceptional journey. The book presents a series of interviews with Gary, his mother Wendie, who never gave up, the medical team who initially treated him, and the therapists who worked with him over a period of three years. Through their testimony we learn about the devastating effects which can follow a serious assault to the head, and the long process of recovery over several years. With specialist rehabilitation and continuing family support Gary has exceeded expectations and, apart from some minor physical problems, he is now a normal young man. Surviving Brain Damage after Assault shows that, contrary to popular belief, considerable gains can be made by people who have experienced a long period of reduced consciousness. The book will be of great value to all professionals working in rehabilitation - psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, social workers and rehabilitation doctors, and to people who have sustained a brain injury and their families.

              Life and Suicide Following Brain Injury tells the story of Tom, a 43 year-old man who acquired a brain injury from a road traffic accident at the age of 22. Tom survived but went on to take his own life 20 years later. As a vulnerable adult with mental health issues and long-term... difficulties with substance misuse, this book tells Tom's story from his early childhood through to his death. In telling Tom's story, the author- a researcher in brain injury and Tom's sister- identifies the multiple suicide risk factors as well as the lack of understanding and inadequate service provision for people with complex needs following TBI. His story serves as a harrowing example of what can go wrong when timely intervention and support is not forthcoming, identifying a multitude of risk factors and possible points of intervention to improve care in the future. This book provides insight to professionals and academics across health and social care in the risks of suicide associated with TBI. It also provides support for those who have experienced the grief of losing a survivor to suicide, or those struggling to support a survivor who is suicidal.
