The ASSBI Melbourne team hosted their first event on Friday 11th August at Happy Melon studios for a guided mindfulness meditation session followed by a screening of the documentary 'Alive Inside'.
Following the movie attendees shared their thoughts and experiences of loved ones living with brain impairment. On the door donations totalled $70 and were donated to the Alive Inside Foundation which works to bring personalised music therapy to individuals with dementia and connect younger members of the community with elders through the 'empathy revolution'.
A big thank you to Happy Melon for sharing their space with the ASSBI student team for this event
The ASSBI Sydney team hosted a trivia night at Bar Cleveland in July. Over 20 people attended and the event was a great success!
The Brisbane Team held their first event on May 2nd. They had two guest speakers: Martin Sale and Megan Broughton. Martin presented his research on tDCS on stroke patients combined with physiotherapy and Megan talked more clinically about ACT- based intervention for those living with an acquired brain injury. The event was a huge success with ~ 40-50 people attending and engaging in discussion!
Wellington (NZ) Team
The Wellington team held their first event on May 8th. It was a meet and greet alongside a documentary screening. They started off the evening with a glass of wine and some food and there were some great discussions amongst those who came. A variety of people attended, including lecturers in neuropsychology, practicing neuropsychologists and postgrad students interested in the field. Then we screened the documentary "Broken" (part one of a series) which is about a local neuropsychology rehabilitation organisation and told the story of patients admitted into their in-patient rehabilitation ward in Auckland. The event was a great start to promoting ASSBI in New Zealand!
