Webinar: Delivering safe and accessible care for survivors of psychologically traumatic events

April 13, 2022
Online (Zoom)


An introduction to trauma-informed dementia care

More than 70 percent of people have experience a psychologically traumatic event. The effects of these events can continue into late life, and the onset of dementia can interact with trauma-related needs in important ways.

In this webinar, Dr Monica Cations will provide practical advice on how to deliver safe and accessible care for people with dementia who have experienced traumatic events. You'll learn about the wide-ranging effects of psychological trauma in older adulthood and be introduced to trauma-informed care.


  • Appreciate the lifelong effects of experiencing psychological trauma and how these effects can interact with dementia to influence experiences and behaviour
  • Understand the key principles of trauma-informed care and how these can be incorporated into dementia care
  • Gain practical skills to deliver safe and accessible care to older people and people with dementia who have experience psychological trauma.
