Difficult Conversations: How Therapists Can Help Families Talk about Aging, Illness, and End of Life
Saturday, December 03, 2022, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
Category: CE Events: Families

This on-line interactive workshop will begin with a viewing of "Wooden Nickels," a video showing adult children attempting to talk among themselves, and with their mother, about fears related to the mother's memory problems. The workshop will then focus on therapeutic approaches to working collaboratively to meet the challenges of this stage in an aging parent's life and in the lives of the adult children. At the conclusion of this program the participants will be able to (1) discuss two or more ways family dynamics may complicate family communication around support and caretaking of aging parents, (2) identify two ways psychotherapists can help family members overcome barriers to having such conversations, and (3) discuss two psychoeducational strategies to increase understanding of signs and symptoms of cognitive and physical decline and the many resources available to families and therapists to help with these issues.

Hosted by the Psychodynamic Couple and Family Institute of New England online for 3 CEs. For more info, visit www.pcfine.org.
