Don't miss “Train the Trainer: Memory Training for Seniors,” at the APA convention in Washington, D.C.

By Shevaun Neupert

Dr. Robin L. West will conduct a half-day CE workshop at the APA convention in Washington, D.C. “Train the Trainer: Memory Training for Seniors” will present a critical research overview and prepare 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 will provide participants with an overview of past memory training research, and demonstrate a comprehensive and successful memory training program, focusing on strategies, self-efficacy and control, which they can implement in their own communities.
