Description
This introductory workshop presents a critical research overview and prepares psychologists to offer an empirically validated memory-training program for older adults. Memory training can be effective with seniors, but maintenance of training effects has been elusive. Training programs that change beliefs may be key to long-term maintenance. This workshop provides participants an overview of past memory-training research and demonstrates a comprehensive and successful memory-training program, focusing on strategies, self-efficacy and control, which participants can implement in their own communities.
Learning Objectives
1. Synthesize research results on memory training for healthy seniors.
2. Identify important principles for delivering a successful community-based memory intervention for older adults.
3. Comprehend educational materials, such as the Everyday Memory Clinic Workbook.
4. Apply educational materials, such as the Everyday Memory Clinic Workbook, to offer memory training in their own communities.
