Parenting After a Brain Injury
The complications of living with a brain injury are severe enough, but what if you are also a parent or carer?
Join our brain injury specialists for a one-hour webinar on the 4 May at 1pm, where they will explore the challenges faced by parents after a brain injury, support and strategies that can be implemented and discuss case studies of brain injury survivors who have had to parent alongside recovery.
The 45-minute session will also be followed by a Q&A where you can submit your own questions to our expert panel, which includes:
Bethany Sanders | Partner at Leigh Day
Laura Murphy | Associate Solicitor at Leigh Day
