CyberABIlity

CyberABIlity- Understanding & preventing cybercrime after brain injury

 

This session will be led by Dr Kate Gould, Clinical Neuropsychologist, together with two people who have had lived experience of scams after brain injury.

Alarmingly, sophisticated cybercrime is rife and causes significant distress to those affected.

Individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI) may be particularly vulnerable due to neuropsychological, social and financial changes. Importantly, lack of insight and rigid thinking may interfere with interventions to help people with ABI extricate from scams.

This session is for clinicians and service providers working with people with brain injury.
