We are delighted to welcome Bev Palmer, a behavioural specialist, who spoke about an important topic which impacts the lives of many following serious injury.

The ‘Liminal Space’ is a space in time between the familiar ‘what was’ and the uncertain ‘what’s next’. Many patients and clients who sustain serious injury find themselves in The Liminal Space: they have experienced a fundamental loss or change in their lives and have not yet accepted or adapted to the adjusted phase of their new life. This brings with it many challenges, which can often manifest in depression, hopelessness and even suicidal ideation.

Bev spoke to Emma Lyons about identifying clients who are living in ‘The Liminal Space’ and working with them to transition into the adjusted phase of their lives. Bev explained the importance of identifying the extent to which problems may be attributed to living in The Liminal Space, in the context of other ongoing physical, neurological, psychological and developmental processes.
