This recording will explore successful emotion regulation skills and strategies to use with cognitively impaired clients. This includes looking at the function of a behaviour (i.e., what need is your client meeting in this moment?) in order to first understand what emotion your client is experiencing. Secondly, we examine triggers to that behaviour to broaden your understanding of the emotion. Then, specific skills and strategies will be discussed to assist your clients through the process of understanding, regulating and communicating their own emotion in order to improve their quality of life. While treatment for cognitively impaired clients tends to focus on the behaviour, by assisting them with understanding and managing their emotions we can greatly improve treatment outcomes overall.   



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
