Some of you may know of Janet Edmunson. Her husband was thought to have PSP when he was alive but brain donation revealed he had CBD. (Both PSP and CBD are disorders in our local support group.) She wrote a book titled “Finding Meaning with Charles” on what she learned as a caregiver; the book is organized around “caregiver affirmations.”
She visited the Bay Area several years ago and spoke on the topic of
“caregiver affirmations.” She also joined several meetings with group
members. Janet is the chair of board of CurePSP. Plus she has been
hosting webinars for caregivers for the last couple of years.
Janet sent out this invitation recently for a 45-minute webinar
tomorrow (Thursday, June 26th, at 11am CA time) for caregivers that is hosted by eCareDiary. If that’s not a convenient time for you, you might register anyway so that you can receive a link to a recording of the webinar.

Are You Emotionally Healthy? Exploring Positive Psychology in Caregiving

optimist, research in positive psychology demonstrates that we can

resilience. Janet Edmunson, M. Ed. and author of “Finding Meaning with Charles,” explores this exciting research and uses practical
activities to explore positive ways to get through this challenging
life experience. Join us for this FREE 30 minute Webinar followed by a 15 minute Q&A session.
