If you live in the Vancouver area, or are planning a visit there, here are a couple of excellent seminars you will want to be sure and attend!
This coming Saturday, April 1st, 2017:
PEACE OF MIND, MENTAL WELLNESS AND THE CHURCH: Carey Institute, Vancouver. This seminar is about how the church can better address the implications of psychological factors often accentuated in later life (e.g. anger, depression, anxiety). It also aims to help us better understand the complexities of living for those dealing with dementia and those providing care. Led by Rev. Dr. Paul Pearce, Director of the Centre for Healthy Aging Transitions (CHAT) Carey Institute, Dr. Sandra Yuk Shuen Wong, Registered Psychologist, and Rev. Doug Johnston, who for over 21 years worked in a nursing capacity at the veterans Shaughnessy Hospital in Vancouver, where he ministered to many living with dementia.
AGING MATTERS: July 17-21, 2017, Regent College, Vancouver. Led by Rev. Dr. Paul Stevens, author of the wonderful new book by the same name, and Rev. Dr. Paul Pearce, Director of the Centre for Healthy Aging Transitions (CHAT) Carey Institute. Accommodation available through Carey Centre, Vancouver. Here is a description of the course, which I quote from the Regent College website:
