TEEPA SNOW AND THE POSITIVE APPROACH TO CARE
There are 3 things that Teepa Snow's videos are really good for (find her online at her website Positive Approach to Care or on youtube:
1. gaining awareness and knowledge
2. seeing another person's perspective
3. introducing you to skills you can use immediately = hand under hand, GEMS state model, etc.
Remember...do you as the care partner want to be right or do you want this situation to work??
