A Common Sense Approach to Emotional Trauma and Why we ask “Why?”

Some life events can leave us depressed, despondent, and even suicidal but it can be especially hard for healthcare workers who suffer in silence. Also impacted by emotional trauma are our residents who feel the pain and loss of their former active life. With a common sense approach, Judy Salisbury opens up an interactive discussion on the issue of Emotional Trauma; definition, recognition, options, with hints and tips to helping yourself or others. Moving beyond cold erudition, this workshop also includes a candid, intuitive discussion on why we ask, “Why?” when we experience emotionally painful, life-altering events.

Dementia Engagement through Technology

Senior living professionals are looking to improve clinical and quality of life outcomes for their residents. Engagement technology programs provide opportunities to care for residents undergoing physical and cognitive decline by focusing on their strengths and interests and by encouraging self-expression and personal development. This strength-based, person-centered approach results in a better person-environment fit, which is essential to increase self-esteem, enhance confidence and improve the quality of life for all residents. Engagement technology programs that engage and motivate can facilitate enriched interactions and allow staff to recognize that well-being encompasses all the dimensions of personhood—mind, body and spirit. Engagement technology is intuitive, and if approached with specific objectives and milestones in place, the rewards to residents and professional and familial caregivers can be transformative.

Preventing or Responding to Distress through Promotion of Well Being

Most distress among persons living with dementia represents an expression of unmet need. Instead of treating ill-being through reactive pharmacological and/or non-pharmacological interventions, our primary goal should always be supporting well-being. Today, we will learn how to use the seven domains of well-being developed by the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (Dupuis, Whyte, Carson, et al. 2012) as a framework to assess and proactively support well-being. When necessary, this framework can also be used to decode and respond to expressions of stress and distress, thus reducing excess disability and unnecessary drug use.
