Course Description:

This dynamic, one-day program will help you more effectively understand and intervene with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias that affect your geriatric patients. In an energetic and uplifting style, Dr. Steinberg will introduce you to a recipe of what works and what doesn’t with and for older adult patients and their care providers. Dr. Steinberg will address the cognitive implications of the aging process in general, its effects on individual patients, and the pathological changes and functional manifestations specific to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Walk away with the tools necessary to differentiate the diagnostic criteria for various types of dementias seen in older adults, including Alzheimer’s disease, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Fronto-Temporal Dementia and Lewy Body Dementia. You will return to your practice better able to participate in interdisciplinary approaches in evaluation and treating Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. Don’t miss this ‘one-of-a-kind’ seminar.

Join geriatric psychologist Roy Steinberg, PhD, and walk away with:
  • Behavioral interventions to engage patients with dementia to participate in therapy
  • In-depth therapeutic approaches and practical strategies to use for ADL re-training and functional mobility for patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Strategies to strengthen and refine report writing/results
  • Answers to your patients and their families concerns and fears related to the aging brain
  • Tools to recognize underlying psychological conditions vs. dementia
  • Evaluation and development of treatment plans for patients with dementia
  • Cognitive interventions to maximize daily functioning
Objectives:

  1. Analyze the impact of dementia on brain structure and function, and determine the difference between “normal forgetfulness” and cognitive impairment.
  2. Diagnose dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease, by accurately identifying manifestations of each type and understand how these differences impact prognosis in older adults.
  3. Articulate differences between the Folstein Mini-Mental Status examination, SLUMS, and MOCA and effectively utilize them as screening measure tools for cognitive impairment and dementia.
  4. Employ adaptable behavioral interventions that can provide patients with individualized care and promote more effective participation in therapy.
  5. Investigate the concept of caregiver guilt and its implications for the client, clinicians, and those caring for older adults with dementia.
  6. Correlate patients’ strengths and limitations to potential therapeutic approaches when developing treatment plans for older adults with dementia.
