Psychotherapeutic Interventions for People with Dementia

This workshop is organised by the Society's Division of Clinical Psychology Faculty for Psychology Specialists Working With Older People (PSIGE). It workshop will look primarily on individual and group psychotherapy.

Details

Learning outcomes and objectives

  • What is the “problem” for people with dementia that psychotherapy might be able to provide a way to address?
  • How can we understand the process of change that may occur, and how can this be addressed?
  • What psychotherapy skills might be appropriate to meet these needs, and how can they be adapted?

In trying to address these questions the workshop will draw on evidence from existential psychology and psychotherapy process research as well as material from clinical practice.

10:00 - 16:30 (refreshments from 09:30)

Facilitator

Dr Richard Cheston CPsychol
