“Back to the Story:” Incorporating Trauma Sensitive Understanding into the Care of Persons with Dementia
To fully understand someone’s current behavior, it’s important to understand what may have happened in the past. “Back to the Story”: Incorporating Trauma Sensitive Understanding in the Care of Persons with Dementia will explore this principle, especially concerning persons with dementia. This interactive workshop will describe how early trauma may manifest as behavior in persons with dementia, explain how trauma impacts the nervous system, how trauma such as abuse, neglect, and abandonment affect family systems, and how this relates to family caregiving relationships. Kristy Matheson presents. One hour free Continuing Education credit available.
