About the Course:
The terms “dementia” and “Alzheimer’s Disease” typically incite fearful thoughts of frailty, loss and diminishment. It is time for an educational course that teaches us how to identify and connect with people where they are strong! This fun and uplifting course offers 13 strengths, each with specific strategies we can employ to help people function in that strength. The objectives of this course are improved relationships, enhanced life quality, and a reduction of challenging behaviors.
This course is recommended for health care professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, social workers, and addiction counselors who seek knowledge about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. It is appropriate for all levels of participants’ knowledge.
