This portfolio thesis comprises of three parts; a systematic literature review; empirical paper and supporting appendices. Part one is a systematic meta-analytic review of the effectiveness of educational interventions for social communication difficulties following an acquired brain injury. A systematic search identified seven studies to be included in the meta-analysis. The results from the meta-analysis are discussed, as well as clinical implications and suggestions for future research. Part two is an empirical paper which examines whether decision making is different following a brain injury. Following this, it investigated whether this difference was related to poor executive functioning in the domains of inhibition and planning, or poor social cognition. The results from the study are discussed in relation to previous theories and the clinical implications are considered, finally potential ideas for future research are presented. Part three contains appendices relating to the systematic literature review and the empirical paper, in addition to an epistemological statement and reflective statement.
