Neurobehavioural Disorders: Their Origin, Nature and Rehabilitation (Level 2)
(When available, please download the registration form here). Brain Damage is not a unitary phenomenon. The nature of neuropathology, the pattern of disability it produces, the probable course of recovery and the most likely outcome, in respect of long-term sequelae, can to some extent be predicted from a knowledge of the mechanisms underlying the injury. For this reason, this module on neurobehavioural issues, their nature and rehabilitation starts from the premise that an understanding of the mechanisms of brain damage, in its early states, is a good basis for understanding some of the sequelae.
Rodger Wood, Ph.D., DCP, C.Psych. graduated from the University College, Swansea, in 1972, with an Honours Degree in Psychology, and went on to complete three years post-graduate training in clinical psychology at the West National School of Medicine. He interned at Addenbrooke Hospital and the National Hospital for Nervous Disease studying neuropsychology. He subsequently specialized in the assessment and rehabilitation of Traumatic Brain Injury. He is currently the Head of the Psychology Department at the University of Wales Swansea.Dr. Wood has published numerous articles and books on neurobehavioural issues and has developed an international reputation for his research. He is considered one of the pioneers of the neurobehavioural model of rehabilitation.
