The techniques shared in this video are absolutely amazingly simple but profound. Yes, it does take practice and genuine care to do them effectively. I have reaped benefits from use of these techniques. When you can can reach out and get anything out of a person living with dementia, when you can enter their world, it is extremely rewarding! I do not know you but I love you Teepa. You are Awesome! Thanks for sharing your expertise and practical knowledge.
Efficient Visual of Interactions

Excellent dialogue by Teepa as she explains philosophy and gives brief, yet clear demonstration of key behavior/interactions. Great tool to introduce PAC to new people.

I have used this wonderful tool with my support groups and they have loved it. It is presented tenderly and sweetly and in a clear and concise way. Tired caregivers appreciate this format very much. message is so clearly presented. Thank you, Teepa and all who are responsible.
Brings PAC Skill to Life

I like this PAC skill video because it is concise and approachable. It is shorter in length and includes short introductory overviews to the Positive Approach and GEMS. Then Teepa demonstrates the Positive Physical Approach with each GEM (real live people living with dementia in a care facility). Finally Teepa demonstrates and explains how to use Hand Under Hand techniques in practical situation (oral care, showering, etc.). She doesn't just show you, she explains why it works and why it is important.
