The subject of this year's Creating Hope workshop is ministering effectively and with compassion to older adults who have mental health issues. Through the workshop, attendees will learn about the mental health challenges and psychiatric disorders commonly seen in Baby Boomers and older adults as they age, along with resources available to help with these disorders; and explore the role of spirituality and religion as resources for mental health.
Presenters: Dr. Art Walaszek, board-certified geriatric psychiatrist and professor of psychiatry at UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health; and Dr. Susan McFadden, professor emerita of psychology at UW-Oshkosh, and research consultant with the Fox Valley Memory Project.
The workshop is being held at the Grand Meridian in Appleton. $50 charge includes breakfast, presentations, materials, and certificate of attendance.
