I'm a doctoral student undertaking research that aims to explore children and families experiences of parental brain injury. In particular, I will be looking at the impact of a parent's brain injury on family functioning and children's wellbeing. I hope the research will lead to making recommendations about how to support the whole family following brain injury.
My research will involve interviewing family members of different ages. I was just wondering what words or phrases families with children use to describe brain injury? Do you call it a brain injury? Or something else?
I would really appreciate your help. I want to make the research as accessible as possible. I am hoping to interview families with children between the ages of 8-18, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
