Post traumatic growth webinar

Understanding and encouraging post-traumatic growth is in the best interests of the client but how do lawyers reconcile this with that they consider to be their duty to paint the bleakest picture and thereby maximise clients damages?

This webinar is aimed at catastrophic injury and clinical negligence lawyers, but may also be of interest to case managers and therapists who support clients following bringing personal injury claims.

About our speaker for the Post traumatic growth webinar

Richard Maddicks, Consultant Clinical Neuropschologist, Psychology Chartered

Richard’s initial immersion in Neuropsychology in the 1990’s was predicated on the strong belief that applied psychology should concern itself with helping people with the most challenging of human difficulties and experiences. A placement at Hurstwood Park Neurological Centre as a clinical psychology trainee and subsequent completion of the post-doctoral diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology at the Maudsley Hospital, laid the foundation for extensive NHS work in in-patient and community Neuro-rehabilitation services.

Over 20 years experience in medico-legal work has seen him instructed as an expert neuropsychologist in civil, criminal and family law cases. However, his strong interest in multi-disciplinary neuro-rehabilitation and treatment(s) underpins an emphasis on therapeutic work with patients and associated ‘systems’ following trauma, head injury and adjustment to many complex neurological conditions. Wary of the ‘perils of independence’, Richard now works as a partially dependent practitioner in Portsmouth, brilliantly supported by his family, friends, professional network and team.
