Listening to people with Dementia (1 day)

Person-Centred Counselling Skills is widely recognised in research as being the most effective approach to use when communicating with people who have dementia.  Dementia robs people of their ability to reason with the world around them; it also strips them of their most recent memories.  What goes last is their emotions and it is this part that really needs to be heard.  Adjusting to this can be difficult for relatives and it’s hard for them to maintain a meaningful relationship.  Using Counselling Skills can transform what can feel like a frustrating situation into one that is alive with character, meaning, emotion and connection.

This workshop will run in 2020.  If you would like to be added to mailing list, please complete the information and click the ‘Update Me’ button in the right column.
