Dear Caregivers: Don’t fear failure

Registrations are closed for this event

Many family caregivers strive to succeed at caring well for their loved ones but also live with a fear of failure.They worry that they are going to make a mistake and cause their loved ones to suffer more. They have a “negative bias” in their thinking, focusing more on the one task they’ve done wrong rather than the hundred they’ve done right. In this Caregiver Teleconnection we’ll talk about developing more realistic and accurate measures of success and failure to help caregivers feel more confident and self-accepting.


Date May 22, 2019
