LIVE Interactive Webinar Training: Understanding Behaviors as Forms of Communication
November 17, 2021
4:00 pm EST
This workshop will aim to highlight the importance of understanding the impact dementia and related illnesses have on a person’s ability to communicate. As a result, care partners and care professionals may need to shift their communication approach and gain insight into the variety of ways individuals living with dementia may communicate. Through this workshop, we will look to reframe typical “problem behaviors” sometimes exhibited by individuals living with dementia as expressions of need and explore the myriad ways individuals with dementia commonly communicate their needs, especially as the illness progresses. Participants will explore strategies to proactively meet needs, as well as develop tools to de-escalate and diffuse situations if they arise. This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions.A complete course description, including objectives, agenda, speaker bio and cancellation policy, is available here.2 continuing education (CE) hours from the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), National Association of Social Workers (NASW), and the New York State Education Department’s State Board of Social Work are available. 2 CE hours from The Commission for Case Manager Certification are also available to CCM® board certified case managers.Registration fee: $25Click here to registerThis program is approved by the National Association of Social Work (Approval #886446769-1454) for 2 continuing education contact hours.Understanding Behaviors as Forms of Communication, Course #3600, is approved by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program to be offered by Alzheimer’s Foundation of America as an individual course.
