Cognitive Rehabilitation and Memory Enhancement

PROGRAM DETAILS

Evidence-Based Techniques to Slow, and Even Reverse, Memory Problems

Millions of older adults are suffering from impaired memory and attention. These deficits can affect where people can live, how much support they will need and their quality of life. Although recent research has found that memory enhancement interventions are effective at preventing further decline and improving memory abilities, these resources are not widely available to professionals who work with older adults or people who have experienced traumatic brain injury. In addition, very recent research has found that physical exercise, nutritional changes, and social support interventions can improve cognitive ability and quality of life. Once again, however, the necessary resources have not always trickled down to the people who can use them.

In this cutting-edge course, participants will learn up-to-date information about memory, aging and dementia. They will learn how to implement evidence-based interventions to slow, or even reverse, memory problems. Participants will get web access to over 300 cognitive rehabilitation activities and social support interventions for community settings. Most of these activities and interventions are appropriate for people who want to be proactive in preventing memory loss as well as those who have mild cognitive impairment, early stage dementia, or cognitive deficits after a stroke. Workshop participants will learn how to take advantage of preserved cognitive abilities that allow even mid-stage dementia patients to learn new skills. Finally, attendees will learn how to motivate their apathetic and unmotivated residents and patients so they can take advantage of these breakthroughs.
 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Learn practical cognitive rehabilitation/enhancement activities designed to improve memory and cognition in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), early-to-mid-stage dementia, vascular dementia, or traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Review cutting-edge research on memory, aging and dementia, and learn how to implement tailored cognitive enhancement programs for people of varying abilities
  • Participate in hands-on learning of the latest interventions for improving the ability to make new memories
  • Describe the "Use It or Lose It" theory of memory and aging and review supporting evidence
  • Learn basic information about memory, why we forget and how memory changes over the lifespan
  • Develop a foundational understanding of the neuropsychological basics regarding memory, aging, dementia, TBI and MCI
  • Discuss the different types of dementia and other conditions causing memory loss, how each affects one's ability to think and make new memories and common treatments
  • Review the latest research on how nutrition, physical exercise, mood and social support affect cognition, and develop interventions based on these new research findings
  • Develop and implement effective cognitive rehabilitation enhancement programs for people of varying cognitive abilities
  • Utilize many of the more than 300 cognitive enhancement activities you will be able to access online
  • Identify effective ways to motivate even depressed, apathetic and anxious patients to participate in therapy and activities that can improve their memory ability and quality of life
