Alzheimer’s Dementia: Approaches for Prevention and Reversal


Presented by :  Jim Graves, Ph.D. 


Alzheimer’s Dementia (AD) has been considered to be a terminal neurodegenerative disease. However, recent research has demonstrated that AD is both preventable and reversible, at least in early stages. This presentation will address the causes of AD and the lifestyle interventions needed to prevent or reverse the degenerative process.  




Jim Graves, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Pasadena and an Adjunct Instructor at CSPP-Alliant International. Jim has a Ph.D. in Human Physiology and spent 15 years as a medical school professor.  He teaches the biological bases of mental disorders and has spent the last several years studying and counseling in the field of Alzheimer’s dementia. 






Goals and Objectives:  Attendees will be able to:

·      Describe the causes and pathophysiology of three types of Alzheimer’s Dementia (AD).

·      Utilize simple assessment tools that measure cognitive and lifestyle status related to the risk of AD.

·      Apply lifestyle interventions that can be used in preventing or reversing early stage AD.
