Training Resource ~ An Alzheimer’s Surprise Party

“Speaking as a professional psychologist, teacher, and trainer, I highly recommend An Alzheimer’s Surprise Party as an exceptional training tool not only for professionals, but also for family members, friends and caregivers.

It is exceptional because Tom and Stan have made it interactive. They do not simply present abstract psychological concepts, but develop detailed reality based personal experiences enhanced with clear concise observations, structure, and learning.

Their style of presentation alternates back and forth between human experience and observation, all within a phased structure that sharpens the reader’s experiences even further. This technique helped me differentiate my own observations, go deeper into my own inner experiences, deeper into my learning, and added depth to my teaching.

And this style even makes it a great resource for the nonprofessional lay person who may shy away from psychology or get turned off by psychological concepts.

As a training tool this book is both timely and essential and could help transform the way people interpret and respond to patients with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.”
