22nd John K. Friesen Conference 2013

22nd John K. Friesen Conference

Taboo Topics in Residential Care

27-28 May 2013

Topics include such difficult to deal with issues as: resident-to-resident aggression; bullying and abuse; theft; alcohol and other substance abuse; and sexuality. The focus will be on recognizing and dealing appropriately with these issues - and will include discussion of chemical and physical restraints, segregation, and surveillance of residents who are a danger to others or themselves; use and abuse of anti-psychotics and off-label medications; treatment options for addictions; and environmental design and programs that allow for intimacy between consenting adults. Getting the right balance between protecting people’s human rights and protecting those who need to be protected will be an underlying theme.
