What others have said about our classes...

There was a real range of backgrounds and experience in that group, and I appreciate how you tried to tailor it to be meaningful to the whole group.


I enjoyed your class.  I plan to attend more of your trainings in the future!

Good pace, interesting examples helped in learning. 


I enjoyed your class and your style! Thank you! 


It was a good group and informative class. 

The half day... works great for me as it's so hard to get time off, & my attention span dwindles in day long trainings.


Karin is excellent, superb, fantastic!

Depression, Dementia, & Delirium

Differences & Diagnostic Tools

Among the most common disorders seen with older adults, these three disorders share many symptoms.  The situation is complicated by the very real possibility of having a combination of these issues, or even all three simultaneously. A cascade of negative outcomes can result from any of these disorders and can greatly impact quality of life and even mortality. Therefore, quick and accurate diagnosis is essential for proper intervention.   Learn diagnostic tools as well as prevention and treatment options. 

CEU's approved for counselors and social workers by WMHCA, for guardians by the CPGB, and for long term care providers by DSHS.
