The Brain Injury Social Work Group (BISWG) worked with the British Psychological Society (Division of Neuropsychology) and the University of Essex to present a free conference in April 2022, which addressed the complexities of decision making in mental capacity practice.

The sessions are now available to access free of charge. They are delivered by social workers, those with lived experience, psychologists, psychiatrists and legal professionals.

The event was held in memory of Dr Melanie George whose work in this area has led to better understanding of the frontal lobe paradox in acquired brain injury. You can read the paper published by Dr George and Dr Gilbert here:
