This portfolio is made up of three sections:

Part one is a systematic literature review, in which the empirical literature relating to family-based interventions after brain injury –delivered both face-to-face by therapists and utilising new telehealth delivery methods –is reviewed and critically contrasted. It aims to explore the effectiveness of these delivery methods.

Part two is an empirical paper exploring the shared relationship of mothers and non-injured siblings of young adults who have incurred severe traumatic brain injury. This was implemented using semi-structured interviews and analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, with consequent themes discussed in the context of established empirical and theoretical literature.

Part three comprises the appendices, including further information for parts one and two, as well as reflective and epistemological statements.
