For Family Caregivers: Putting the Caring Back into Caregiving
September 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Highly stressed caregivers are often consumed with the strain of completing their many caregiving duties. Unfortunately, they may consequently lose some of their compassionate connection with the loved ones they are caring for. In this workshop by a psychologist, former caregiver and author of two self-help books and an AARP.org column on family caregiving, we will discuss ways of exercising choice and grounding caregiving in love, not obligation. We’ll also talk about means of deriving caregiving’s positive rewards. Case illustrations will be used throughout.
Barry J. Jacobs, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist, healthcare consultant and the co-author of “AARP Meditations for Caregivers: Practical, Emotional and Spiritual Support for You and Your Family” (Da Capo, 2016)
