How did the students change when they learned about DT?
What kind of image do young people have of dementia? How did they change when they learned about DT? I would like to show you it in this presentation.
I came to Australia for the first time as a reporter in 1994. Since then, I have been researching Aged Care in Australia with a keen interest and learned about Diversional Therapy. I was welcomed as a member of DTAQ in 2001. Since my first presentation at the DTAQ Conference in 2004, I have attended at the National Conference of DRTA every year until this year. I would like to change Japan’s closed Aged Care field little by little by passing on the Diversional Therapy I learned in Australia to Japan. I respect the philosophy of Diversional and Recreation Therapy as the basis of human living. DTAJ has provided DT Training Courses to more than 400 people and has been certified as “DT Worker”. I have been Australia 46 times so far and I’m looking forward to meet with you face-to-face.
