The Intentional Clinician: Psychology and Philosophy

Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People: Understanding Alzheimer’s from a Caregiver’s Perspective with Dr. Stephen G. Post PhD. [Episode 91]

August 13, 2022

Dr. Stephen G. Post Ph.D returns to The Intentional Clinician Podcast, this time to speak about his new book: Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People: How Caregivers can Meet the Challenges of Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Post is an extremely knowledgeable professor, writer, researcher, and advocate. Paul Krauss MA LPC and Dr. Post have a lively discussion about the challenges of aging in those who experience memory loss as well as how to help the caregivers of those living with Alzheimer's Disease.

How do we approach a "deeply forgetful" loved one so as to notice and affirm their continuing self-identity? For three decades, Stephen G. Post has worked around the world encouraging caregivers to become more aware of—and find renewed hope in—surprising expressions of selfhood despite the challenges of cognitive decline.
