Join us for a highly interactive program that will answer some of the most baffling questions being asked by carers around the world. This seminar will eliminate some confusion and reveal insights that will change the way caregivers approach the ‘dementia dilemma’. We will explore how behaviors are instinctive human reactions that are triggered by the environment and daily interactions and witness a demonstration of how positive interpersonal dynamics can emerge with profound simplicity when caregivers recognize that ‘fear’ and ‘shame’ are often at the core of negative behavior.
Neuroscience, psychology, and human nature each play a role in the human condition. Learn how automatic reactions are the default mechanisms in play when intellect fails. Gain a new sensitivity with an integrated perspective that will inspire more effective caregiving and interpersonal dynamics. When we reach out with knowledge and understanding we can improve the quality of life for everyone involved.
