The brain-stimulating approach known as Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming (TTAP) has a proven record of improving the lives of people with dementia by increasing their engagement and functioning. In Transforming Dementia through Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming: A New Psychology of Art, the Brain, and Cognition you now have all the tools and instructions for putting this innovative and life-affirming approach to work in your own care setting. You too can successfully enervate the minds and hearts of people living with this challenging cognitive disease.

Participation in the creative arts has been shown to promote cell growth that enhances the brain s ability to learn and recall new information, create new ideas, and make new connections. Using 12 separate forms of creative expression ranging from sculpture and painting to physical movement and mental imagery TTAP builds on themes in an integrative way that helps each individual with dementia draw upon memories, feelings, and intellectual reserves that promote positive self-regard and active social participation. Sample activity protocols guide you through the process of engagement to help you quickly master the steps.

Activities using the TTAP method can provide
significant stimulation and integration of multiple brain regions
enjoyment, engagement, creativity, relaxation, and a sense of purpose for people with even advanced dementia
an easy-to-follow framework that allows infinite variations on themes and personal interests
complete documentation for tracking and evaluation
opportunities for one-on-one or group programming

By blending the principles of art and therapeutic recreation with the latest findings in brain research, Transforming Dementia through Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming presents an exciting new psychological taxonomy that captures the dynamic interplay between brain functioning and expressive and emotional stimulation.

Use the TTAP method with people with dementia to
Enhance self-esteem
Improve mood
Decrease symptoms of depression
Boost memory
Encourage the use of language
Enhance recall abilities
Foster new opportunities to engage in life

Activity directors, therapists, social workers, nurses, nursing assistants, and even family members can successfully implement these methods. Learn and apply them today, then be amazed by the results!

Review:

Thanks to the implementation of the TTAP Method through the TTAP Certification Program, Bergen Regional Medical Center in New Jersey is now on the forefront in providing best-practice approaches to activities. Dr. Linda Madori's Transcending Dementia through the TTAP Method has brought knowledge to the Therapeutic Recreation Staff which has been enhanced the residents' quality of life at BRMC. I also recommend this book for families who have loved ones with Alzheimer's disease. This book provides a new approach on how to deal with this disease and the benefits of using the TTAP Method. --Kristin Mullins, MA, CTRS, Director of Therapeutic Recreation, Bergen Regional Medical Cente, Paramus, New Jersey

Having worked in dementia care for many years, I was thrilled to help bring Dr. Linda Levine Madori's Transcending Dementia Through The TTAP Method to aging network personnel around New York State. The New York State Office on Aging supported a educational grant to over 300 Healthcare participants to complete a one day certificate TTAP Method Training program in 2011 at six locations around the state. The Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming training was the most successful course of the year. Feedback documented that the trainees appreciated the content as well as the instructor; one trainee noted, Presenter was knowledgeable, utilized active experiences & related to each discipline present.I hope you enjoy Dr. Levine Madori's recent book and bring active treatment for dementia care to adult day programs, in-home services, assisted living centers and nursing homes. --Erin Purcell, Aging Services Representative, New York State Office for the Aging
