ABI – Dr Amanda White

Dr Amanda White   Quals: PhD, B Psych (Hons), B Beh Sc, DipH, MAPS.

Acquired Brain Injury: Permanent changes in cognitive, emotional, and memory functioning can occur following damage to the brain. As a result, a person’s behaviour and capacity can also change. Psychological services can assist with emotional regulation (e.g. depression and anger), facilitating problem solving, and decreasing compulsivity.

Counselling Approach: Understanding behaviours which can be both complex and challenging is integral to developing a successful treatment plan. For ABI, a solid assessment foundation is required. The diversity of personal and relational issues that arise from ABI then requires a tailored approach to best suit client goals. Depending on the severity of the ABI, best practice may reflect a multisystemic approach that includes multiple stakeholders, e.g., family members or community groups. By fostering resilience and active coping skills, many persons with ABI have reported positive treatment outcomes.
