reminiensce man and generations

Reminiscence is an evidence based practice that can assist older adults with later life transitions and enhance coping.  Since reminiscing is a naturally occurring experience, this process can be incorporated into various practice settings.  Furthermore, reminiscence can be used individually with older adults, with families, or within a group format.  Typically, reminiscence involves positive experiences that can help older adults cope with challenges of later life by recalling strengths, connections, and joys of the past.  Sometimes, however, painful experiences may also surface which can provide opportunities for repair and closure. 

This module discusses the theoretical foundation for reminiscence, and ways that it can be used in practice.
