This webinar will provide information about Montessori-Based Activity Programming (MAP), an innovative method for working with people with dementia that’s based on the work of Italian educator Maria Montessori. MAP is designed to improve patients’ quality of life and to reduce apathy, aggression, anxiety and agitation. Participants will learn key aspects of this approach and see real-world examples of how it can be applied on an everyday basis.

Organizer

The Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of NY

The Mental Health Association of New York City established The Geriatric Mental Health Alliance in January 2004. The Alliance was formed to confront the mental health challenges of the elder boom and to promote critical changes in practice and policy.

The goal of The Alliance is to promote improved geriatric mental health practice by identifying best and innovative practices, identifying barriers to their use, developing policy proposals to overcome these barriers, and advocating for policy and practice changes. To this end, The Alliance sponsors consensus groups on topics related to geriatric mental health; a series of presentations on best practices with national experts; and numerous conferences. In addition, the Alliance provides technical assistance regarding service models and funding including how to optimize Medicare funding.
