PROGRAM DETAILS

It is estimated that up to 46 percent of nursing home residents display verbal aggression and up to 51 percent display physical aggression. Aggressive behavior is widely recognized as the most common behavioral precipitant to nursing home admissions and can take a devastating toll in terms of physical and emotional injury, personal and property damage and facility liability. Coupled with the fact that most facilities and caregivers are often ill equipped to effectively manage aggression, the problem can quickly reach critical mass with the emergence of even a singe serious case or incident. Typically, aggression is primarily addressed with powerful psychotropic medications which, while sometimes effective, carry significant risks when used with geriatric residents.

This one-day seminar will provide participants with non-pharmacological tools to address geriatric aggression in an informed, safe and effective manner. Research on aggression risk factors, a strategy for assessing and isolating the causes of aggression, techniques for monitoring behavior and selecting and carrying out behavioral interventions will be discussed. During this seminar, clinicians will gain skills to implement highly effective, low-cost, empirically informed interventions. These interventions are applicable to a wide variety of aggression-based resident and facility issues. Using a combination of lecture, discussion, entertaining anecdotes and case-based approaches, this program enables and empowers attendees to not only apply these strategies, but to also train others.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Gain innovative strategies and interventions designed to dramatically reduce the frequency and intensity of geriatric aggressive behaviors

  • Recognize why behavioral and other non-pharmacological interventions are the first-line treatment of choice for aggressive behaviors in the geriatric population

  • Increase staff and resident safety while reducing facility liability using safe and low-cost methods of behavioral management

  • Master the application of the H.E.A.R. strategy of assessing potential causes of geriatric aggression

  • Utilize case studies to turn today´s new information into tomorrow´s geriatric aggression solutions


  • Discover methods of behavior observation and documentation that promote effective assessment and treatment of aggression while helping guard facilities against potential liability

  • Identify the social, cultural, medical, psychological and psychiatric contributions to aggressive behavior

  • Realize the prevalence and widespread effects of aggression in the elderly

  • Recognize empirically established risk factors for aggressive behavior

  • Uncover subtypes of aggression along with assessment and treatment of these subtypes

  • Find out why behavioral and other non-pharmacological interventions are the first-line treatments for aggressive behavior in the elderly

  • Learn the application of the H.E.A.R. strategy of assessing potential causes of geriatric aggression

"Dr. Heck´s seminars are not only engaging and informative, but they also offer sound, practical techniques that are easily implemented in the clinical setting. A gifted presenter, Dr. Heck´s personality and sense of humor, combined with his clinical expertise and presentation style provides for lively discussion and fast-paced learning." - Patricia A. Campbell APRN, BCClinical Nurse Specialist

"Dr. Heck is one of our star presenters. He has an exceptional ability to combine complex theoretical concepts with practical experience, and present the resulting material to his audience in a way they can understand and use.

Audiences tell us that Dr. Heck´s presentation style greatly enhances the learning experience. He uses case examples and "war stories" to clarify concepts, and one of his trademarks is his humor - always applied appropriately.
