The ABC of BOC- Working with older adults with complex care needs who display behaviours of concern

Most of us are committed to the principles of delivering person centred care. Often times, though, our skills, knowledge and resolve are seriously challenged when we are working with older complex care recipients who display behaviours of concern. There are times too, when patients, clients and residents demonstrate behaviours that are so concerning or challenging that they impede our actually ability to provide effective person centred care.. 

Highly regarded facilitator, Dr Alice Rota-Bartelink, brings you this practical workshop that is designed  to provide a vibrant, but strictly confidential, discussion forum for professionals willing to discuss de-identified cases and to learn with and from their peers in a supportive and relaxed environment.

"A very interactive session which improved my understanding of how to breakdown individual behaviours enabling better insight into managing them"

Working Effectively with Clients Experiencing Family Estrangement

Health professionals regularly encounter clients who are estranged from one or more family members.  Family estrangement often results in significant grief responses as well as decreased social functioning. While estrangement impacts families across the lifecycle, there is some evidence that older clients, clients experiencing periods of crisis and those nearing the end of life might experience an increased desire to reconcile with their estranged relative or at least learn to live with the loss of the ‘family ideal’.  This practical workshop is designed to assist you to help clients living with family estrangement.

How to Influence Behaviour Change in Patients with Severe or Persistent Mental Illness

The Australian Government Partners in Recovery Program (PIR) is an innovative approach to better support people with severe and persistent mental health conditions with complex needs. The approach focuses on the person, the illness and its context and the range services and supports across a multitude of sectors they (and their family and carers) may need to facilitate recovery. Find out more about Partners in Recovery at http://www.health.gov.au.

Asking for help or being able to articulate their needs is sometimes a challenge for some people with severe mental illness. Stabilising the condition and or recovery is often painstakingly slow and challenging for the person with mental illness. And it can be frustrating for all of those professionals and carers that are part of their recovery team. 

As we try to connect with our client, understand their actual needs, formulate a plan and find professionals, resources and services to build the recovery team, we can often feel stuck and doubt ourselves as practitioners. We may feel like we are burning out trying to assist clients who are yet unable to grasp the benefits of change.

It tends to erode our confidence and may create stress around working with our mental health clients which could then impede their recovery.

Making a Difference in Sleep

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ONLY

 

Integrative Psychological Therapy for Sleep:  An introductory workshop providing practitioners with practical and clinical skills to assist clients with sleep difficulties

This introductory course is aimed at developing your understanding of an integrated therapeutic approach beyond sleep hygiene when working with clients. Sleep is often an area that is under reported and yet sleep difficulties have been associated with depression, anxiety and chronic conditions such as diabetes.

Insomnia and sleep difficulties are often related to high levels of hyper-arousal, anxious pre-occupation and stress which impacts a person’s ability to cope with daily functioning and be resilient.

An integrated approach to sleep therapy incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness is an effective method to provide evidence based intervention for clients to improve their sleep and overall health and wellbeing.

For allied health professionals, GPs, nurses, sleep technicians and any other professional working with chronic and complex conditions

How to Influence Behaviour Change in Patients with Severe or Persistent Mental Illness

The Australian Government Partners in Recovery Program (PIR) is an innovative approach to better support people with severe and persistent mental health conditions with complex needs. The approach focuses on the person, the illness and its context and the range services and supports across a multitude of sectors they (and their family and carers) may need to facilitate recovery. Find out more about Partners in Recovery athttp://www.health.gov.au.

Asking for help or being able to articulate their needs is sometimes a challenge for some people with severe mental illness. Stabilising the condition and or recovery is often painstakingly slow and challenging for the person with mental illness. And it can be frustrating for all of those professionals and carers that are part of their recovery team. 

As we try to connect with our client, understand their actual needs, formulate a plan and find professionals, resources and services to build the recovery team, we can often feel stuck and doubt ourselves as practitioners. We may feel like we are burning out trying to assist clients who are yet unable to grasp the benefits of change.

It tends to erode our confidence and may create stress around working with our mental health clients which could then impede their recovery.

The ABC of BOC- Working with older adults with complex care needs who display behaviours of concern

Most of us are committed to the principles of delivering person centred care. Often times, though, our skills, knowledge and resolve are seriously challenged when we are working with older complex care recipients who display behaviours of concern. There are times too, when patients, clients and residents demonstrate behaviours that are so concerning or challenging that they impede our actually ability to provide effective person centred care.. 

Highly regarded facilitator, Dr Alice Rota-Bartelink, brings you this practical workshop that is designed  to provide a vibrant, but strictly confidential, discussion forum for professionals willing to discuss de-identified cases and to learn with and from their peers in a supportive and relaxed environment.
