Would you like to increase your knowledge of Teepa’s GEMS States and develop your skills in a supportive on-line workshop environment?
Over 12 sessions, Jessica, PAC Mentor, will lead us through a close look at each GEMS state helping us to hone our skills of in-the-moment assessment and supportive strategies. We will learn how to cope with distress and create pleasure for people experiencing brain change. We will enhance our skills in adapting our Positive Physical Approach, using cues that match abilities and building our partnerships so we can start and complete our tasks together.
Using Teepa Snow’s 12-part GEMS® series as a guide, we will enhance our awareness, knowledge, and skills in appreciation of the many changes that people often experience throughout the progression of dementia. Each participant will have opportunities to practice, ask questions, utilize a variety of resources, and to access recordings for a limited time.
Thursdays 7-8:30 pm EST
March 3oth through June 15th
- 12 weekly, 1 ½ hour sessions -
- Access to resources and session recordings -
With the right setting and the right care, ALL GEMS CAN SHINE!
