About the Seminar:

In this session, Doug will share his personal experience working with those living in the world of Dementia and Alzheimer's. He will share about his personal involvement with the residents of a care home, how he related and communicated with them, actively involving them in group sessions. It is our hope that the Important relational dynamics presented in this seminar can be applicable to all who have a relationship with someone living in the world of dementia.
