When The Brain Doesn't Want To See
Time & Location
About the Event
What does it mean to live with visual impairments due to brain injury? And which impact does this have on one’s personal life and surroundings? Flore Van Dooren, a clinical psychologist at Koninklijke Visio, will take us on a deep dive into these neuropsychological questions. Koninklijke Visio is an expertise center for partially sighted and blind individuals. In this webinar, Flore will speak about everything she learned from her job that she was never taught as a clinical psychology student at KU Leuven. First, she will explain the neurological base of visual impairments due to non-congenital brain damage. Second, she will talk about coping with the loss of one’s (physical) health, and how this is linked with mental health problems, like depression and anxiety. After her presentation, there will be room for discussion and questions.
For who? For students who want to learn more about the neurological base of non-congenital brain damage and its link with mental health and quality of life. In case the event gets fully booked, priority will be given to psychology students.
Why? Because you might have the feeling, like Flore once did, that you don’t have enough background knowledge on the influence of neurological impairments on one’s personal life. But also if neuropsychology in general usually knows to excite you, this webinar is definitely worth attending!
