Training for Professionals
The Encephalitis Society is able to offer tailor-made training packages to health, education and social care professionals. These packages cover various aspects of Encephalitis and can include modules such as:
- What is Encephalitis?
- Diagnosis, Treatment and After Effects
- Recovery and Rehabilitation
- Social Consequences
- The Role of Peer Support in Recovery and Rehabilitation
- The Work of the Society
Training can be anything from 2 hours to a full day and we do not have restrictions on the number of participants. Some organisations and health trusts arrange 2 or 3 days interspersed throughout the year so they can accommodate all the necessary staff.
I am writing to thank you for the excellent training you provided for us. I have had so much positive feedback from various members of staff, from Rehabilitation Support Workers to Psychologists. All have been unanimous in their praise for the way the training was prepared, and the manner in which it was presented, which made it understandable to everyone.
I was wondering if you would be interested in holding future sessions for us, we still have a large number of staff who would benefit greatly form increasing their knowledge of this disease and it's effects. . . .

Members can gain 5 CPD hours by attending this workshop
Child Brain Injury Trusts know that the quality of support and capability of those within the school can have a major impact on the outcomes for a child or young person. They acknowledge that very few educational staff have any awareness or understanding of the issues that a child may face on their return to school, as this is not covered by any basic training, even for Special Educational Needs staff.
The Child Brain Injury Trust’s training on childhood acquired brain injury aims to fill this gap in knowledge. The workshops provide a no-nonsense, jargon free approach to childhood acquired brain injury.
