Join us for the final Mercy Educational Lecture of 2013! Linda Trettin, PhD, a neuropsychologist at Mercy Outpatient Rehabilitation, will speak about coping with MS, while providing strategies that will enhance cognition, mood and relationships.
Our lives are in fact defined by constant change. Whether you are diagnosed with MS or MS has touched the life of someone you care about, coping with change has likely become a central issue.
Change often brings about multiple questions. You may be challenged by questions regarding the way you now view yourself, relationships, and the cognitive changes that you may be experiencing. You may be looking to improve your health or other circumstances, or simply for a way to bring hope and resilience into your life.
Learning practical skills to address coping with MS-related changes are often the basis for meaningful transformation. As a neuropsychologist, Dr. Trettin plans to share clinically supported methods for training the mind away from unhelpful thoughts that no longer serve us. In their place, she will provide practical suggestions for establishing behaviors and attitudes aligned with your values and aspirations. Topics to be covered during her talk include ways to enhance cognitive functioning, promote communication skills in relationships, and foster emotional wellbeing.
Light Dinner will be served.
Pre-Registration is required by Tuesday November 19, 2013.
