I did not want anyone to ever feel as disorientated and bewildered as I did – Christine Durham.

Unlocking the Brain (previously published as Doing Up Buttons) brings to life Christine's personal experience of brain injury - from being unable to walk, talk, see or think clearly, to how she regained her life, her thoughts and her confidence. In 1991 Christine was involved in a horrific car accident and suffered extensive injuries including Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).

Not only is Unlocking The Brain a guidebook for people with brain injury to help them come to terms with the daily experience of ABI, it is also a reference book to help professionals understand the back-story of their clients. Brain injury not only damages a person’s brain and body (as recognized by the medical profession) it also damages the person’s beliefs, hope, honour, trust, safety and security.

About the Author

Dr Christine Durham’s life was turned upside down after she sustained a severe brain injury in a horrific car accident. Despite this tragedy Christine returned to teaching and employed her experience of acquiring a brain injury to inspire her students to think, and her pioneering approach and book, Chasing Ideas, led her to gain global notoriety as a professional learning presenter. Christine’s autobiography, Unlocking My Brain, is a deeply personal yet practical account of her experience with brain injury and has had a profound effect on those who can relate personally, as well as professionals working in health care.
