Tea and coffee will be served from 12.30 onwards at the Nick Macintosh Seminar Room for attendees only.

This seminar focuses on findings from studies examining the socially shared understanding of what it means to live together with a relative with dementia and be a good caregiver, i.e. the social representations of dementia caregiving. Nils Töpfer draws on an analysis of frames and counter-frames in a recent blockbuster movie on Alzheimer’s disease (“Head Full of Honey”) as wells as an analysis of anchoring of dementia care in newspaper articles and interviews with dementia caregivers. He will discuss the findings in relation to the psychosocial issues of (de-)stigmatization, caregiver burden, service utilization and organization of dementia care.

This talk is part of the Social Psychology Seminar Series (SPSS) series.
