Event Description

Caregiver burden can be reduced by improving family resilience: the ability to develop adaptive inter-personal skills, such as differentiating the person from the illness, and positive family qualities, such as mutual acceptance and empathic involvement. This can contribute to a sense of family wellbeing, ensuring the best outcome for both patient and caregiver. Dr. Laura Nichols, a registered Psychologist, will discuss methods for caregivers to develop the resilience necessary to cope with their loved one’s illness.
