Psychology and Ageing

AAG Vic with the APS Psychology and Ageing Interest Group (PAIG) proudly presents this webinar.

This online live-streamed webinar aims to explore and discuss the issues faced by psychologists and neuropsychologists as our current ageing population continues to grow. Issues such as dementia, decision making capacity, work capacity, mental health, memory interventions and carer burden, have become the centrefold topics for those working within the ageing sector.

It is important that clinicians working with the elderly are able to provide an understanding of these issues and the psychological aspects of ageing in order to improve current services in this area.

The webinar will cover:

  • Evidence based therapy
  • Alcohol related dementia
  • Driving capacity
  • Reminiscence therapy
  • Strategies for relatives as carers of people with dementia
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Healthy cognitive ageing
  • Mental health and ageing
