Normally, traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries require a major life adjustment and have a deep impact  on  social  and  work integration and thereby on  quality of  life. Return  to  competitive  employment  gives  the  possibility  to  promote  autonomy,  self-realization and personal dignity and can be considered the aim as well as a tool of rehabilitation.  In literature there are a few studies concerning  reintegration  to  work  of  people  with  this  kind  of  disabilities. Most  of  this  studies  investigate  predictors  of  successful  work  reintegration,  but  doesn’t  give  us  information  about  participants’  perceived  occupational  life  situations. Our cooperative, on the occasion of the 42nd National Congress of the Italian Society of Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine (SIMFER), plan a study designed  to  assess  the  outcome  of  employment  in  people  with  severe  acquired brain injuries (ABI).
Beyond some predictable results, our data highlights how in the most of cases reintegration to work is by a social company as a non-profit organization. If we consider that a large number of participant in our work didn’t be able to indicate a service supporting RTW, we can assume that there is some distance between individual’s needs and responses of local authorities.
Despite continuous upgrades in activities of occupational and working pathways, the number of job placements ​​decreased from 25% in 2007 to 4% last year, probably due also to current socio-economic crisis. Here  it is important to note that predictors indicate in literature do not take into account the law and the economic reality of a State as well as the real possibility that labor market offers to people with ABI. Indices of a very good chance of recovery of everyday life, including work, collide with opportunities and resources of social, economic and political environment. In response  to this critical situation, our centers have tried to use more and more high-tech information technology both as a means of training for future business activities and as strategic tools to address the practical difficulties that people with ABI encounter in workplacement.
