This 1-day workshop will give learners an overview of how to deliver Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST).

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) was developed by Dr Aimee Spector, a psychologist in the University College London, and her colleagues based on research they had done into therapeutic activities with people with dementia. CST involves a series of 14 sessions designed to support people with dementia to maintain their cognitive functions, support them with day to day activities, and provide a socially stimulating group activity. A significant amount of research has been done on CST, providing evidence of its effectiveness.

The workshop involves teaching, group exercises, role-play and video observation. It is delivered by Dr Michelle Kelly, Lecturer in Psychology, National College of Ireland and Accredited CST Trainer.
