What happens to the brain as our clients age? Many clients of psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, medical professionals, and ministry leaders are concerned that they may lose their memories and become senile. Clients often want to know if there are choices they can make to protect their brains from the ravages of time. In this presentation, participants will examine which mental and physical risk factors can increase one’s risk for dementia later in life. Participants will also discover evidence-based lifestyle factors and non-pharmacological interventions which will protect clients’ brains and diminish their risk of dementia.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify risk factors that accelerate the aging process
2. Compare and contrast normal aging with pathological aging (dementia)
3. Outline evidence-based lifestyle factors and non-drug interventions that slow the aging process and prevent dementia
