Following injury, many survivors seek an answer to that common question: "what do you do then?". Be it paid or voluntary, a work role can be a powerful element in a survivor's rebuilding of their identity post-injury. However returning to work can be a challenging process, with the needs of both survivors, work colleagues and the employer requiring support during the process. Common reasons for difficulties in the workplace are often not the ability to do the actual job, but are related to social interactions with colleagues. We will explore these common challenges during this talk, take questions and share links to helpful resources. (Headway)
