In Deeper Into The Soul: Beyond Dementia and Alzheimer's Toward Forgetfulness Care, the authors invite us to shift our attitude toward dementia, or Forgetfulness, as they call it. Accompanying us are four characters -- a sage, a psychologist, a physician, and an intern -- who each see Forgetfulness from a different viewpoint. The goal is to develop a perspective which includes the basic ingredients of openness, curiosity, and acceptance.

Nader R. Shabahangi, Ph.D. received his doctorate from Stanford University and is a license psychotherapist. In 1994, noticing the often inhumane treatment of the elderly living in institutions, he started to develop an innovative Gerontological Wellness Program in order to provide emotional support and mental health care services for the elderly. Since then, he has launched innovative Gerontological Wellness Programs while designing non-pathologizing programs to work with forgetfulness and other ways of Dementias -- including Alzheimer's--in care homes for the elderly in San Francisco. Nader continues to create programs with the purpose of care more comprehensively for the elderly. He deepens this explanation through teaching 'eldership'; workshops in Europe and the United States. These seminars explore the difference between getting 'old' and growing into the role of an elder and have the purpose of preparing us for old age and eldership. He continues his work by training interns and supervisors in an existential-humanistic and process-oriented attitude to life and living. Dr. Bogna Symkiewicz is a psychologist and psychotherapist who has been teaching for over twenty years at the University of Warsaw. She holds a Diploma in Process Work from Zurich, works with clients in private practice, teaches process work, and facilitates groups.

Bogna is a regular visiting professor of Pacific Institute and in that capacity collaborates in research projects, public programs, seminars, courses, and training supervision. She is the mother of Julia and Paulina, two beautiful 16-year-old twins.Review:
