Family Interventions with Dementia Training

Family Interventions with Dementia.

Family Interventions in Dementia is a 3-day course from APT, the UK's leading independent provider of training in mental health and related areas. You can attend this APT-Accredited course as an individual, or we can bring the training to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people. The course may run on three consecutive days, e.g. from Tuesday to Thursday or, for example, three consecutive Wednesdays.

Executive Summary:

This course provides professionals with the understanding and skills to support those with dementia and the people around them. It aims to maintain the best possible quality of life for patients by building the knowledge and strategies of families to improve their own well-being and those they are caring for.

This course (a) provides information for understanding the importance of good assessment and diagnosis in helping the family develop a compassionate understanding of the condition, (b) describes the qualities you need to engage with those living with dementia and (c) gives you practice in skills and interventions you can teach to carers.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
