About 50% of homeless people have had a traumatic brain injury at some point in their lives. That’s according to Cormac Duffy, NHS Psychologist specialising in treating the homeless. For some, it happens long before they become homeless and has a terrible ripple effect throughout their lives.
Pragmatism and compassion are musts when dealing with this troubled population.
Here Cormac Duffy reflects on the challenges of working with homeless people and the importance of being pragmatic both when treating homeless people and conducting homelessness field research at the Pathways from Homelessness Conference.
This presentation was filmed at the 7th annual symposium, developed by Pathway and the Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health and brings together the latest international and national research and best practice in health, housing and public services for homeless and excluded people.
This presentation is essential viewing for healthcare professionals, homeless charities and policy-makers dealing with homelessness and rough-sleeping in the UK.
