Ongoing research brings new discoveries and changes in our understanding of the brain, its function and what happens when it is damaged. I have worked with people with brain injury, their families and workers for 25 years or more.Things change. In the spirit of life-long learning I wish to share my knowledge and opinions, and those of others.

Please remember to check how this affects your situation, before you make any change based on any information at Changed Lives New Journeys.

You should seek advice from your work supervisors, doctors, the treating team and or family before you implement any changes, or any strategies suggested here, or wherever you find ideas and information.

This site aims to educate,share and develop skills, it is not a medical, or professional service.

Brain injury is different for every person, and needs a different approach for each person. Everything about Changed Lives New Journeys is designed to assist people who are supporting people with brain injury in your ongoing learning. I work to ensure that the information is accurate however given every person and every situation is different you must seek professional advice from those who know your specific situation before implementing any change.

I hope Changed Lives New Journeys will be a place to ask questions, share ideas that work (or maybe did not work) and generally share information. We need a few principles to make sure that sharing is OK for everyone:

      • Privacy – the privacy of other people you might be talking about must be respected.
      • Respect – the language we use, the way we work, the ways we address people are some of the ways we can show respect for others. Please make sure everything you post here is respectful of all people.
      • Lifelong Learning – contribute and share in the spirit of education and development for all.
      • Acknowledgement  of each others views even if they differ from our own and  of the work of others. Back to Top

I will endeavour to reference and acknowledge all information I use from other sources. If you believe a source is not appropriately acknowledged please contact me and let me know. If you could provide the correct reference, that would be really helpful. My learning has been over 25 years and from many people in many countries, and I may not have recorded all sources.

One of my goals is to select, review and catalogue information on brain injury and provide links to other resources including videos, books, articles that might be useful. I will monitor and check as thoroughly as I can but I am not able to vouch for all the sites and links provided. Please carefully check issues such as privacy, security and safety of any site before providing, or getting information; downloads; or products from any sites.

It is also recommended that you follow these same considerations for any site you visit.

There are no paid links. All books, links, and audio visual sites, anything at all that is talked about here is because it may be a useful resource for you. It provides no income to Changed Lives New Journeys unless by donation (unlikely but a wonderful idea). Back to Top
