What is included with this book?


This easy-to-use guide draws together the experiences of the author and her colleagues to provide an accessible workbook for reminiscence skills training. It includes information on the history and definition of reminiscence work, the value of the reminiscence experience to older people and their carers, and how to set up, run and maintain group and individual reminiscence activities. Emphasising the role of reminiscence work in the social and emotional care of ethnic minority elders, people with dementia and older people who have been bereaved, this Handbook will not only help to promote reminiscence work but also enhance everyday communication between carers and older people.The acquisition of skills and knowledge is made easy through the inclusion of Training Points and Training Activities for each section. These are devised to enhance understanding by making links with the personal experience of the reader, and will be invaluable as training tools both in reminiscence skills and general courses on the care of elderly people.With extensive information on reminiscence together with associated training activities, this title is ideal for professional carers, volunteers, family carers and trainers who wish to learn how to promote good practice in reminiscence work
