It is easy to use and provides a convenient method forquantifying changes in behaviour. The tool can be used, for example, forcomparing the effectiveness of creative activity programs or to ensure thesuccessful matching of activities to the unique needs of each client or ofa group. Its aim is to assess the creative expression abilities of people withmild to severe dementia. In the first part of the session we will discuss thepractical and theoretical considerations that led to the development of thetool, while the second part of the session covers hands-on demonstrationand training of the use on the tool. This workshop is ideal for creativeexpression facilitators, researchers, administrators of care facilities,caregivers as well as family members.

Itis based on a variety of planned and spontaneous activities addressed toclients with mild to severe dementia. It is also based on solid academicresearch and years of practical experience. Workshop participants will learnnew ideas that will enrich their own work as facilitators. It will includetopics such as health and family matters, fears, anxieties, achievements,life and death issues, food, arts, pets, seasonal celebrations and holidaysand how they can materialize into creative expressions. The workshopemphasizes the use of clients’ present abilities that may encourage themto tap into their past life histories and express their feelings creativelythrough drawings, writing poems, storytelling, music and reminiscing.

Workshop 3Hearts, Hands and Voices:Celebrating Life with Singing and Creative ArtsKirstin Robertson-GillamTime: 8.30am – 12.30pmCost: $80.00 per person, morning tea includedMaximum of 40 participantsCreative expressions can enable a person to express their spontaneity, joyand spirituality through singing, music making, art work, imagery andvisualisation. The timeless dimensions beyond the physical can emergewhere meaning and purpose are discovered. Oliver Sachs said “music ofthe right kind can serve to orient and anchor a (person) when nothingelse can” (2007, Musicophilia). This workshop explores elements of silenceversus sound via meditation, Tibetan singing bowls, shamanic drumming,vocal toning, singing rounds, chants and songs as well as drawing,dancing and group discussions. (Participants are asked to bring a mat formeditation, pastels or oil crayons for drawing and voices for singing.)Having fun is a prerequisite for this workshop.4 t hI n t e r n at ion a lC on f E R E N C Eon C r e at i v eE x pr e s s ioN,C om m u n ic at iona n d D emen t i aWorkshop 4Creativity enlivens the spirit. Live, laugh and expressin this Laughter Boss training workshoPDr Peter SpitzerTime: 9.00am – 5.00pmCost: $140.00 per person, morning tea, lunch & afternoon tea includedMaximum of 40 participantsLaughterBoss originates from the philosophy that laughter is the bestmedicine. The positive power of humour is well-known and bringinghumour and laughter into aged care assists staff to more creatively meetquality of life and psychosocial care issues of residents. The LaughterBossis also well placed to help reduce staff stress and improve staff morale.The LaughterBoss is modern day equivalent of the court jester. They bringtogether the art and the medicine. Ideal candidates for training are staffmembers who have intimate knowledge of residents, families and staff aswell as a thorough understanding of the environment and culture of thefacility. Training to become a LaughterBoss does not make the applicanta professional performer. They remain a healthcare professional who hasdeveloped creative skills in introducing humour and laughter into theirfacility. The NHMRC 3 year humour therapy in RACF grant will also bediscussed and reviewed. This is an experiential training workshop so bringalong your funny bone.

The group was joined by avariety of volunteers including local home helpers, traditional folk singers,English conversation teachers and so forth, who were keen to promote abetter understanding of dementia.‘Our aim is to go out into the community and promote a better understandingof dementia and its related issues through comical sketches. Such visualmeans, we believe, are far more effective than any lectures in helping thecommunity be more aware of various issues related to dementia. Our motto“Let’s promote a better understanding of dementia!” represents thethree appeals we would like to make to the community. The first is to removeprejudice against dementia by promoting the idea that, when we relate to themwell, elderly people with dementia are not much different from other elderlypeople except that they have slightly unusual personalities. The second is tobring them out into the community because there are limits to the care thattheir own family alone can provide. And the third is to encourage people toconsider dementia as their own issue. The whole community will come to gripswith the issue of dementia when everyone seriously considers what it would belike if they themselves or their relatives have dementia.’
