Techniques to Increase Positivity for Caregivers: Session 2
by Janet Edmunson, M.Ed.

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

For family and professional caregivers

Webinar Description: Continuing in this series, Janet will discuss in this third webinar additional practical techniques that caregivers can use to counter balance the sometimes difficult daily responsibilities of caring for a loved one. She’ll draw from the scientific field of positive psychology to explore skills to increase positive emotions such as giving and receiving kindness, hanging on to passions and connecting with others in spite of the limitations caregivers struggle with for time, energy and interest. Whether you are an optimist, pessimist or somewhere in between, these strategies can strengthen you for the daily challenges of caregiving.
