Enjoying and Engaging with Challenging Older Adults
with Jane Dressler, JD, OTR/L and Carolyn Glogoski, Ph.D., OTR/L
Friday, June 7, 2013
12:30 – 4:00 PM
San Francisco General Hospital
1001 Potrero Avenue, Rm 7E12, San Francisco, CA 94110
This three-hour presentation will begin with a discussion of how aging affects select areas of occupational performance, performance skills, performance patterns and client factors, and explores how unique contexts influence older adults’ occupational performance. We will explore emotional states frequently experienced by older adults and the universal structures that can help us better understand clients’ distress and challenging behaviors. Specific techniques to manage difficult situations will be provided. Concepts from the existential humanistic frame of reference will be introduced to further participants’ understanding of older adults’ occupational performance and to remind all participants of the joys of client-centeredness.
