Self-study Module 2 Working with People with ABI

Self-study Module 2 Working with people with ABI focuses on the building blocks for how to work with people with ABI. This Module assumes you have already completed Module 1 An Introduction to ABI or its equivalent which focuses on introducing what an ABI is and its consequences.

This self-study Module has been designed:

  • as a web based resource that can be dipped into and
  • as a self paced learning module (that can be completed at different depths depending on your role).

If you want to complete it as a self-paced learning module it is recommended that you:

  • take the Pre-Test
  • complete the module - working through the material, case studies, videos and so on
  • take the Post-Test

To fully complete the module
- all graphics, text, videos, questions, pre and post tests
will take approximately three hours.

The module can be completed in less depth in approximately one hour.

Watching the video stories of the people with ABI and the video clips of workers, family members and case managers is essential.

The Module includes:

  • Text
  • Videos (indicated on tabs by Video)
  • Animated graphics (indicated on tabs by Graphic)
  • Questions and answers you can complete to check your progress ( indicated on tabs by Q or Questions)

The animated graphics would be especially useful if you were presenting the highlights of the content to other staff members at a staff meeting or workshop.

Video stories and video clips

The videos include:

  • Stories of people with ABI - there are 8 stories in Modules 1 & 2 - between 3.5 and 11 minutes each
  • Clips of workers, case managers, family members and people with ABI talking about their experiences - There are 22 video clips in Modules 1 and 2 - between 1 minute and 6 minutes each (most are 1 to 2 minutes).

Module 2 Working with people with ABI includes 2 of the stories and 21 video clips.

A couple of stories and video clips are repeated in Module 2 from Module 1. They are clearly indicated so if you have viewed them in Module 1 you do not need to re-look at them - but the questions about the videos in this Module will be different from Module 1.
