Encephalitis is an under recognised and under researched condition. Its sudden onset and diverse long lasting effects mean that the illness challenges people’s understanding and coping resources. This book combines scholarly research and professional insights into encephalitis with ‘the insider perspective’ in the stories of those directly affected by the condition. The narrative approach shows how supporting people to tell their own story of their neurological condition can really help in their understanding of the experience. This unique book will be of huge importance to any professional involved in the care of someone with a brain injury, and the individuals and families touched by encephalitis.
