Brain injury and behaviour

Brain injury and behaviour

Topic created on, Monday, October 21, 2019 , from Islington
Mornlng all, I've already mentioned on the Forum that brain injury may affect people in different ways. When I deliver training I sometimes use video to help people see what changes in behaviour may look like. Today I am posting some links to videos that may help you, but firstly remember every brain injury is different and people are individual in their responses, recovery and support so these videos show some of the situation for the people in them and do not represent everyone.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07c6fjk/louis-theroux-a-different-brain - This is a link to Louis Theroux's excellent documentary following the lives of people in a brain injury rehabilitation setting. You will need an iPlayer account which is free to register for, to watch.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ive2pcGIeVY - This is a short video from Michael Johnson, former world record holder and presenter on the effect of his stroke.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aplTvEQ6ew - This is the first of a series of videos by Sarah Scott who experienced a stroke at age 19. She has recorded the videos over nearly 10 years and so you can see the recovery here.
I hope these are of help to you :-)
