Workshop B - Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand™ (HUH)

This workshop focuses on Positive Approach to Care "care partnering" techniques, including Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand™ (HUH). These newly learned skills enable care partners to shift from simply "dealing with the behaviors" to creating a positive and caring environment. Learners develop observational skills needed to recognize signals of “unmet needs and growing distress” in the person they care for and respond in a way that reduces anxiety and improves quality of life. Workshop Objectives: -Learn how to apply Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand™ (HUH) in everyday situations. -Learn the importance of doing "with", not "to". -Develop observational skills necessary to recognize and address unmet emotional and physical needs. -Learn ways to help the person being cared for feel productive and valued.
