When you have experienced insurmountable challenges – how do you overcome? My son, Shane, is a true example. He has taught me the true meaning of resiliency. After being critically wounded in Iraq, he returned home to meet extreme challenges. Nothing would ever be the same. As a caregiver, I had to prepare for new life with Shane. I was the pupil; he was my teacher. Never give up! When you break down the injuries and what the result engaged on a person, it can provide positive change: identify triggers to post traumatic stress syndrome, define ways to adapt to change, and examine ways to engage with your community. Promote overcoming adversity.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify triggers to PTSD including:
- Causes of triggers
- Ways to overcome triggers
- Defining secondary PTSD to caregivers
- Define ways to adapt to change for the caregiver, veteran, and family, including:
- Ways to adapt to the extreme or severely injured
- Identifying focus on what you can control
- Dealing with isolation
- Examine ways to engage with your community, including:
- Researching community options
- Encouraging others to join and make a goal for your community
This webinar is appropriate for all in nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, hospice and palliative care organizations, and home health organizations.
