Creating Joy by Decoding Distress
Looking at the Eden Alternative Domains of Well-being™, it can be said that the first six domains, together, provide a pathway to joy. Joy, however, can also be created in even the smallest of moments, in spite of one’s cognitive or functional challenges. This sixth webinar of the series will explore the domain of Joy and a radically different way to use all seven domains to create sustained success in drug reduction efforts, even in the most challenging situations.
In spite of growing awareness of the lower benefits and higher risks of antipsychotic drug use in people living with dementia, we cannot successfully reduce these medications until we find more effective approaches to care. According to Dr. Al Power, award-winning author of Dementia Beyond Drugs, the true key to sustained success is enhancing well-being. In this 6-part webinar series, Dr. Power will describe how the Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being provide a powerful framework for caring for people who live with dementia. This new approach offers successful outcomes, where others, including other person-directed approaches, have fallen short.
Presenter: G. Allen Power, MD
