Speakers:  Ken Cole and Susan Perlstein

In this webinar, we examine the theoretical bases and practical applications of storytelling, reminiscence and life review techniques in a variety of artistic disciplines. We also investigate how role playing, sense memory, and collective composition enable older adults to enhance self-worth, stimulate memory and create supportive peer communities. Watch the recording to deepen your understanding of life stages theory, become better able to engage older adults in life review work, and harness reminiscence to drive artistic creation.
