The Older Person & You: Responses, reactions & realities

This is a past event.

From 10:00 to 15:45 on 10th November 2017

Perth Royal Infirmary Conference Centre, Taymount Terrace, Perth PH1 1NX

Cost: £45 - £60

The loneliness of older people at home and in residential settings is often reflected in the experiences of their carers. Working with older people has a powerful emotional impact and those caring for them can feel isolated with little opportunity to reflect on the meaning of difficult and distressing behaviour. Many professional carers are also caring for and relating to older people in their personal lives at a time when their own advancing years have an impact.

We will be exploring these issues and discussing different and creative approaches to thinking about, and working with, older people at this one-day conference. Keynote speakers are Margot Waddell, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Psychoanalyst in London and John Starr, Professor of Health and Ageing at the University of Edinburgh.
