Cognitive Stimulation Therapy
Cognitive Stimulation Therapy is a type of non-pharmacological treatment for people with mild Dementia. At CST, a qualified practitioner specializing in interpersonal communication and dementia treatment invites the individual with Dementia to engage in therapy sessions with a qualified therapist. And session includes a variety of participant characteristics that are meant to retain and motivate the participants. Food, finance, and current events debates are samples of good themes. Individual, respect, commitment, inclusion, choice, enjoyment, and use of recollection, and trying to maximize capacity and improving relationships are all core concepts of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy. After therapy classes have been conducted, the dementia patients get some relieve from the disorder (Shigihara et al. 2020).
Current Treatments for Reversible Dementia
The cause determines dementia treatment. A few of the causes of Dementia is listed below:
- Brain tumors can be treated through surgical operation.
- Depression can be maintained through therapy.
- Dietary by use of dementia supplements like folate, vitamin A, B-12
Treatment of dementia surgery can be used though it might not be of help to ill the disorder. Surgery is often used to treat blockages that cause Dementia. Angioplasties, among others, are some of the procedures used during surgery. Although surgery could counteract the trigger of Dementia, it cannot counteract the brain damage that has already occurred. If your Alzheimer’s is triggered by a tumor or strain on your mind, operation for dementia care can be beneficial.
In the video titled “The Neuroanatomical Transformation of the Teenage Brain”, Jill Bolte Taylor discusses how the physical growth spurt combined with the shift in hormonal system is all part of our body’s biologies and are responsible for the change in behavior that we experience during our teenage years. This may include changes in our impulse control, the way we think, and the way we express ourselves. This is why adolescents may often be regarded as rebellious due to the sudden changes in their transition to adulthood. This is why the TED Talk “Sleepy Teens: A public health epidemic” is considered a problem because “when teenagers do not get the sleep that they need, their brains, bodies, and behaviors suffer with both immediate and long-term effects.” This lack of sleep also contributes to many mental health problems including substance abuse, depression, and suicide. As teens are developing their brains and undergoing massive transformations, it is only optimal that they get enough rest to be able grow healthily. With this said, teenage years is evidently such an important chapter in a person’s life because several stages of growth happen during this period of time.
