And you say to yourself: At 33, I shouldn't have to be doing these things! Well... I have to, which is a b*gger... but there you go. So tomorrow, I'll be doing an exam... I've to do a 2hr written exam picking 2 out of 3 scenarios: Psychosocial Intervention Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Dementia. Got a rough idea of the scenarios, and have had to learn loads of quotes from books... about 29 of 'em on such as... Dementia Drugs. Driving And Dementia Carers Assessments Personhood Daycare Provision Malignant Social Psychology Delusions Alcohol misuse Coping strategies Distraction Techniques Stress Vulnerability etc. etc. Plus I've used mnemonics/acronyms to help me remember key points/ One quote re: dementia which is defined as a 'global deterioration of mental faculties' which are... which are... Hang on... here's the trick: Monkeys Read Jokey Literature!!! Even more confused? The first letter of that nonsense statement means something else... M.R.J.L. Memory, Reasoning, Judgement, Language. Might look and sound mad, but that technique works... I've used it before in exams, either to use the first letter of each word to make up a word of it's own, or to make a statement (anyone musical will probably remember that "Every Good Boy Deserves Football", being the musical scale EGBDF). Wish me luck for tomorrow folks! N.
