Please note: This event is scheduled for March 23, 2018 (8:30a-5:00p).
This year PAC will offer, for the very first time, different PAC Knowledge Intensives conducted by Teepa Snow and her Accomplished Team of Mentors. Each workshop will fill a day. They are packaged in two-day sets. People can attend either day or both days. In each workshop learners will be guided to develop deeper levels of awareness and knowledge related to the specific topic of the day. Learners will also have opportunities to try out skills specifically related to the topic for that intensive. The day will be filled with active learning experiences, fun, fellowship, and opportunities to take what you learn and begin to apply it to what you do every day!
The purpose of these workshops is to take what you already KNOW and improve your depth and breadth for a more complete understanding and improved ability to offer better training and learning opportunities to improve support and care for people living with dementia.
Any individual can attend one or all of these workshops. What you take away will depend on both what you bring with you and what you do while you are in the workshop.
