A series of 4 brief lunchtime 'taster' sessions on clinical neuropsychology for psychologists working as assistants, trainees or band 7s in neuropsychology settings, discussing some of the issues that come up.
Session 4: Some of the common pathologies we see in clinical neuropsychology and ways of working with them
Neuropsychology involves not only cognitive assessment in its various forms; neuropsychological rehabilitation and support; but also working therapeutically with people with neurological conditions.
This last session touches on therapy and looks at some of the key issues in working with people with epilepsy, subarachnoid haemorrhage and brain tumours.
‘Having worked for over 30 years in clinical neuropsychology, I’m still passionate about it as a discipline. I have spent my career in a Neurosciences centre where I combined general and specialist clinics with research, teaching and training, and clinical management. One of the things I enjoyed most about working clinically, was having assistant psychologists and DClinPsy trainees with me in clinic, where we would often break for a quick coffee and chat over what we were doing and why. So the idea behind this mini webinar series is in some ways to try and emulate that, with some very basic tips and insights for people at the very start of their careers. I realise that everyone is super busy – and pretty burnt out with online CPD – but I thought maybe junior colleagues might be able to grab half an hour at lunch time to drop in for some CPD with their sandwich!’
