Assess­ing and Treat­ing Emo­tion­al, Men­tal, and Behav­ioral Changes that Accom­pa­ny Cog­ni­tive Decline

This work­shop will pro­vide an under­stand­ing of each of the caus­es of cog­ni­tive decline and how they impact client out­comes. Pre­sen­ter Sher­rie All, Ph.D., will cov­er the fol­low­ing objectives:

  • Eval­u­ate the use­ful­ness of cog­ni­tive screen­ers such as the MOCA and SLUMS ver­sus when to refer out to a qual­i­fied neu­ropsy­chol­o­gist for a com­pre­hen­sive neu­rocog­ni­tive assessment.
  • Com­mu­ni­cate how the man­i­fes­ta­tions of each cause of cog­ni­tive decline impacts iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and prognosis.
  • Spec­i­fy how effec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion strate­gies and behav­ioral inter­ven­tion can improve client behav­iors and wellbeing.
  • Char­ac­ter­ize how patient safe­ty can be enhanced with strate­gies to redi­rect chal­leng­ing behav­iors and man­age paranoia.
