In early April I was visiting Melbourne, Australia, and I had the opportunity to present for the Australian Psychological Society Study Network Group. Since 2014 I have been running workshops for psychologists about Working with Older Adults. This time around I ran that workshop and also a new workshop, Understanding Cognitive Impairment and Dementia. I have had an interest in older adult mental health since conducting my Masters’ thesis on the topic of positive psychology and older adults, and later I worked in the Aged Mental Health Program of Melbourne Health.
The participants in the recent workshops were really engaged and interesting and it was a great experience. Thanks to the APS Study Group Network for organising the events!
