***Event Postponed - Engaging Dementia - Cognitive Stimulation Therapy Workshop - Dublin.
Update from Engaging Dementia: 'Due to the evolving Corona-virus situation in Ireland, we have deferred all of our March, April and May training events. We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming weeks and schedule new dates as soon as possible. Please follow HSE guidelines to protect yourself and others.'
This 1-day workshop will give learners an overview of how to deliver Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST).
Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) was developed by Dr Aimee Spector, a psychologist in the University College London, and her colleagues based on research they had done into therapeutic activities with people with dementia. CST involves a series of 14 sessions designed to support people with dementia to maintain their cognitive functions, support them with day to day activities, and provide a socially stimulating group activity. A significant amount of research has been done on CST, providing evidence of its effectiveness.
The workshop involves teaching, group exercises, role-play and video observation. It is delivered by Dr Michelle Kelly, Lecturer in Psychology, National College of Ireland and Accredited CST Trainer.
