Dr. Signy Wegener is a paediatric clinical neuropsychologist who has worked in Sydney, London, and Brisbane both in the diagnosis of developmental disorders and with children who have acquired brain injuries. She is currently a Senior Neuropsychologist with the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Service at the Royal Children's Hospital. In her current role Signy works with children who have sustained various types of acquired brain injuries (e.g. as the result of car accidents, strokes, brain tumours and epilepsy) to help maximise the child’s everyday functioning at home and at school.
In this lunchtime session Signy will speak about applying psychology and specifically about how psychology influences her work. So, if you want to find out what it is like to be a ‘real life’ clinical neuropsych, then come along to this session! Places are limited, so to attend email email@example.com on the 24th May 2010.
Please note that this will be the final brown bag lunch session for Semester 1, 2010. The series will resume in Semester 2 on the 6th August with Associate Professor Matt Hornsey talking about ‘my life as an academic’.
