Learning to Recognize and Respond to Signals that I Am In Distress and Need Your Help and How Meet the Unspoken Need
When the spoken message does not match the real need that the person has, it is tricky to resolve. This session will help the team develop their detective skills and problem-solving abilities to better serve PLwD who are no longer accurate in their perception of what is needed compared to what is actually wrong. We will practice multi-modal communication strategies to try to determine what is really needed and how to help.
