Communicating Through Distress – Part One (Recorded Webinar)
This recorded webinar is designed to build responsive, rather than reactionary, skills when confronted with someone who is in distress and not necessarily aware of the real situation, time frame, or location. Individuals living with dementia who are in distress will often voice concerns such as asking to see or talk to people that have already died, asking to go home, feeling that there is something they are needing to do or someplace they are supposed to be, or feeling that they need to seek justice for a perceived wrong. Explore responses to these common distress reactions, including how and why to reflect and whether it is acceptable to lie. Then, learn as real-life issues provided by attendees are addressed.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand reasons why individuals living with dementia may make repeated and/or impossible requests
- Describe response strategies for distress reactions
- Recognize how these strategies can be applied to real-life situations
