Coronavirus Support Webinar Series: Understanding How Your Emotions Impact Interactions With Older Loved Ones ✚
Monday, May 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Many emotions arise when we think about our loved ones’ aging or needing care. Emotions can include anger, fear, sadness, resentment and hope. In communicating with the older adults in our life, we need to be aware of the emotions we’re experiencing and what they represent, to ensure that we have healthy, productive interactions. When we haven’t fully processed our feelings or thoughts, they sometimes come out in negative ways, whether it is through negative behaviors, thoughts or language. This workshop will teach you tools to understand the function of emotions, the impact they can have on interactions with older adults and how to communicate more effectively.
