The “four A’s” common in severe dementia, i.e., apathy, anxiety, agitation, and aggression, prove challenging to staff and families who care for people living with severe memory loss. The first line of intervention in years past had been the use of psychotropic medications, but recent trends across the world are to use behavioral strategies to prevent and manage the challenges of dementia. This 3 hour interactive workshop will focus on learning behavioral alternatives, including problem-solving tools that can prevent a dementia crisis.

Dr. Hartman-Stein is a nationally recognized healthcare consultant, educator, journalist, and clinical
psychologist who specializes in working with older adults and late life families. She has over 30 years
of clinical experience in settings ranging from acute care hospitals, primary care and long term care
settings as well as in the private practice she founded 21 years ago, the Center for Healthy Aging. In
2015 her professional work has moved from direct patient care to education, training and
consulting with professionals. She also conducts holistic wellness group programs and narrative
writing workshops. She and her husband commute between Asheville, NC and Kent, Ohio.
Please register 2 business days prior to the program.
