Webinar: Trauma Informed Care for People Living with Dementia

March 22, 2018

Register for April 10 webinar.

Trauma can occur at any point in life as a result of a number of experiences such as war, abuse, neglect or violence. The effects of trauma can be lifelong. As such, trauma-informed care can be used to assist people living with the effects of trauma as they navigate other aspects of life, including living with dementia and caring for someone who has dementia.

Please join the National Alzheimer's and Dementia Resource Center for the next webinar in the series on April 10 at 1:00 PM Eastern for one hour. Presenters will discuss principles of trauma-informed care as they apply to dementia in Veterans and Holocaust survivors. They will also present resources for applying trauma-informed care principles in various settings.

Participants in the webinar will be able to:

- Define Trauma-Informed Care;

- Identify resources to assist in applying Trauma-Informed Care principles with Veterans with dementia and others;

- Apply SAMHSA’s six key principles of trauma-informed care to work with Holocaust Survivors with dementia to prevent re-traumatization and improve participation in the care plan; and,

- Learn three ways to support family members of Holocaust survivors in order to gain participation in the care plan.

Register for the webinar.
