Trainer: Julie Heathcote
This course is being delivered as part of Saving The 70s, an HLF-funded two-year project which will enable 11 museums and heritage organisations to work with the local community to explore the impact of the 1970s. Priority will therefore be given to the project’s partner museums, but SHARE Museums East are very pleased to be able to offer a limited number of places to the wider museum community.
Julie Heathcote is an Alzheimer’s Society Approved trainer for reminiscence work
The course will cover:
- What is reminiscence and how does it differ to oral history?
- How does reminiscence fit into a person-centred approach?
- The importance of memory prompts
- The benefits of reminiscence: How we remember
- Good listening skills when reminiscing
- Avoiding upsetting memories and how to deal with them
- Reminiscing on different levels with people of differing ability, including younger people living with dementia
- Using memory prompts to engage and empower, with particular emphasis on 1970’s objects
- Looking at how each museum is aiming to use reminiscence.
Museums are invited to bring with them any 1970s objects which they wish to use for reminiscence work, and their project ideas.
