Memory and Its Disorders: A Workshop for Geriatric Care Managers
October 29 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm
PRESENTER: Jason Brandt, Ph.D, ABPP (CN)
What is the difference between normal memory and pathological memory? This half-day CE workshop will provide geriatric care professionals with an overview of memory and will address such topics as memory consolidation, emotional memory (including of traumatic experiences), the malleability of memory, exceptionally good memory, exceptionally poor memory, and memory loss associated with aging and diseases (including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias). As a result of this workshop, geriatric care professionals will better understand the form and content of the memories of their clients who have experienced trauma, and will translate this into improved care.
