This workshop focuses on care partnering techniques Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand™ (HUH). These skills enable care partners to shift from simply "dealing with the behaviors" to creating a positive and caring environment. Care partners will also learn to recognize signals of “unmet needs and growing distress” and respond in a way that reduces anxiety and improves quality of life. A light lunch will be provided.
