Part 2 October 15th 2020 1:30pm:

Denise Weeks- Family Caregiver and Author of book MANTRA: REPETITION IN THE LAND OF ALZHEIMERS

In this presentation, Denise Weeks will discuss the various ways we encounter denial as we give care to those with dementia: theirs, ours, and others. She will offer a useful paradigm for putting denial in context, looking at its possible consequences, and examining our conscience in light of what we discover. Participants will have a chance to share examples of denial from their own caregiving experience and learn strategies that will help them going forward.----------------------------------------

Part 3 October 22nd 2020 1:30pm:

Emily Trittschuh, PhD – Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine and a Clinical Neuropsychologist with the VA Puget Sound Healthcare System’s Geriatric Research Education Clinical Center (GRECC).

What is PTSD and how can past trauma affect thinking abilities in the here and now? Does chronic PTSD increase risk for dementia? When someone with dementia has a history of PTSD, how can these two disorders interact to create daily challenges? This session will explore these topics with time to discuss and explore different clinical care scenarios.

Registration can be purchased as a bundle of all three parts, or separately to suit your needs.
