About the presenter:

Dr. Julie Bajic Smith is a registered psychologist who has worked in aged care for over a decade both as a clinician and a researcher. Her doctorate research examined wellbeing in home care workers and her postdoctoral research focused on supported decision-making in dementia. She has significant experience in assessment and the application of psychological treatments to older adults and recently published a book on enhancing emotional wellbeing in residential aged care environments. Juli has developed several preventative psychological group programs for older adults entering residential care which won Positive Living in Aged Care Awards. Julie is currently supervising mental health clinicians across several residential aged care facilities and delivers education and training to the aged care workforce.

Kind words from recent participants:

‘A client’s emotional wellbeing is an area that is often overshadowed by their more urgent physical needs. You have provided an excellent resource to meeting the client’s needs in a holistic way.’

‘This module was amazing, it has given me food for thought, not only in my workplace, but for myself. When we are at our best, then we can give our best to all those whom we interact with, each and every day.’

‘This workshop has given me more confidence to approach difficult circumstances that arise regularly. With the knowledge that I now have, I can introduce new ways to provide better support for my residents.’
