Forgive for Good: The Art and Science of Forgiveness

Presented by Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine

The workshop is led by Dr. Frederic Luskin, director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good, published by Harper Collins.
The importance of practicing forgiveness has been extolled for centuries, but only recently has research demonstrated that forgiveness can reduce anger and depression as well as enhance hopefulness and self-efficacy.
This workshop series has four sessions of lecture and discussion interspersed with guided practice of forgiveness tools. The format is not intended as group therapy but rather to teach self-care skills to heal old wounds and prevent new ones.

Instructor: Frederic Luskin, PhD Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Project

New and Emerging Treatment for Lymphedema

Presented by Stanford Hospital Health Library

Lymphedema is the swelling that occurs when a blockage in the lymphatic system prevents the lymph fluid in the arm or leg from draining adequately. As the fluid accumulates, the swelling continues.

This talk by the Director of the Lymphedema Clinic focuses on the new and emerging treatments for this condition.

Long Term Care

Presented by HICAP (Santa Clara County Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) and Stanford Hospital Health Library

As aging adults look to the future, questions regarding long term care abound. Long term care provides assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating. It is neither medical nor is it independent living. This talk will address long term care options, including the types of plans available, payment options, including the role insurance can play, home care and facility-based care. Nothing is being sold or referred.

Improving Outcomes in Schizophrenia with Early Interventions

Presented by Stanford Hospital Health Library

While there is still no cure for schizophrenia, treatments have been developed that help reduce many symptoms of the disease. There are many medications now available to help treat schizophrenia. Perhaps most important is to address schizophrenia as soon as it is detected. Early treatment has been shown to be effective in limiting the development and severity of symptoms. This talk will focus on these early interventions and their outcomes.
