Event description
Understanding, prevention and treating cybercrime after acquired brain injury

About this Event

This session will be led by Dr Kate Gould, Clinical Neuropsychologist together with two people who have had lived experience of scams after brain injury.

Alarmingly, sophisticated cybercrime is rife, with $90.9 million stolen in Australia in 2017, causing significant distress to those affected. Individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI) may be particularly vulnerable due to neuropsychological, social and financial changes. Importantly, lack of insight and rigid thinking may interfere with interventions to help people with ABI extricate from scams.

The first hour of this session is for clinicians, service providers, people with brain injury and their family or carers. The second part is for clinicians only and will focus on intervention approaches.

Afternoon-tea will be provided.
