Family Dynamics in Dementia Care – A LIVE, INTERACTIVE Webinar Training

November 15 @ 11:00 am 1:00 pm EST

General Social Work Practice Course (2 CEs available)

This LIVE Interactive Webinar workshop will review the different types of relationships that may be present in the life of an individual living with dementia.  A review of family dynamics and exploration of how to identify and assess these dynamics will be reviewed.  Additionally, we will explore different ways the professional care partner can work with families while understanding their emotional experiences and help everyone effectively communicate. The overall goal is to ensure meaningful living and quality of life for both the individual living with the illness and the family members. This course is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions, as well as case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session at the end.

After attending this course, participants will be able to:

1. Define and describe family roles.

2. Describe how dementia can impact an individual’s family and dynamic.

3. Apply communication strategies that can assist in supporting the individual and family impacted by this illness.

4. Assess family dynamics and their impact on the individual.
