Spiritual reminiscence for older people: Finding meaning in later life, especially for those experiencing dementia
“Spiritual reminiscence is a special way of communication that acknowledges the person as a spiritual being and seeks to engage the person in a more meaningful and personal way. It focuses on the person with dementia and their emotional and spiritual being rather than on cognitive losses.” (MacKinlay & Trevitt 2015)
Highly recommended for nurses, chaplains, pastoral carers, leisure activity officers, and professionals who work with older adults
Testimonial: “This new approach to spiritual care allows for a far more dynamic and mutually fulfilling interaction in small groups of residents who found it helpful and meaningful. These groups not only compliment the work I do, but they provide key elements that are missing. They create a greater sense of community and resident to resident spiritual care. Chris Nelson, Chaplain”
This course will enable participants to facilitate spiritual reminiscence for older people with and without cognitive decline. These skills will be able to be used either with individuals or in small groups. The skills learnt and used will empower each participant in the many situations they face day to day in a professional setting.
This is a face to face interactive workshop. New training videos show actual sessions with people who have dementia and the interactions between them and the facilitator.
Closing Date for Registration 10 October 2022. Limited class numbers.
