On Tuesday, April 21, 2009, I will have the pleasure of presenting a program on Elder Mediation at VNA Community Healthcare, in Guilford, CT. The program is part of the VNA’s ongoing series of Programs for Health Professionals. The program runs from 9:00 to 10:30.
The series includes a wide variety of topics that are timely and informative. The program is in two parts. First, I will present information to help healthcare professionals learn more about this emerging field and talk about when it might be appropriate to seek the assistance of a trained elder mediator. Second, we will have an interactive discussion — taking full advantage of the collected wisdom in the room — to go through some suggested tips to help prevent, reduce, and resolve conflicts involving aging.
