DCU are offering a new training module: Therapeutic Responses to People with Dementia. This module is suitable for those who have completed the DCU Dementia Champions programme. Practitioners are enabled to evaluate different approaches to responding to dementia and to apply psycho-social interventions that promote the well-being of people with dementia and their carers, including: validating people with dementia, building resilience, multi-sensory approaches and dyadic support of family members and people with dementia. Graduates are well placed to support colleagues in integrating these approaches into everyday situations.
Closing Date for applications is the 21st of August 2015. See below for more information and an application form.
