Understanding How Your Emotions Impact Interactions with Older Loved Ones

Thursday, October 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Course Number: WL0051

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.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Understand the purpose behind various emotions and how they can impact behavior with older loved ones
  • Interact with your older loved one in a more effective manner
  • Communicate your thoughts and feelings more successfully with older adults
  • Engage in self-care to support your mental, emotional and physical well-being
