Contemporary Perspectives is the first book to address social work practice in the field of brain injury (BI). Contributions are written by social work authors from around the world, and highlight the diversity of social work practice and theory within this field. Chapters range from practice spanning interventions with families caring for a child with BI; interventions to assist the adjustment of families facing the challenge of supporting an adult relative with BI during the inpatient rehabilitation or post-acute community phase; work with parents with BI who are caring for children deemed to be at risk; and a literature review outlining the impact of a BI on siblings. Other chapters detail a program for self-advocacy; investigate the impact of violence-related BI; evaluate a peer-support program for people with BI; report on the role of support people in facilitating return to work after BI; and examine the role of social work within the interdisciplinary rehabilitation team.

The volume highlights the valuable role social work makes to the field of BI and contributes to the knowledge base informing evidence-informed practice within this field.

This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Social Work in Disability & Rehabilitation.
