Regional Continuing Education Coordinator
Seeing My Time® is a unique, scaffolded approach to teaching patients how to develop the executive function skills of time management, planning and organization from the perspective of supporting your brain.
In this full-day training, educator Marydee Sklar, will guide you through her Seeing My Time workbook. It was carefully created to develop a concrete awareness of the spatial aspect of time through the use of hands-on, muliti-sensory activities. It builds the metacognitive foundation needed to change personal time-management behavior.
You will come away with practical tools and strategies to:
• be on time
• complete daily tasks
• manage multiple roles
• support working memory
• develop daily and weekly plans/to-dos
• break complex tasks into steps
• reach deadlines without being overwhelmed
• create long-term goals
• work on your long-term goals
• motivate task initiation for things you don’t want to do
• handle piles
• manage papers
• calm down your emotional brain
This workshop will enable you to help your patients (and yourself) to improve productivity and a sense of being purposeful with how you use your time.
Course Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course participants will be able to:
• Analyze the areas of weakness in a patient’s executive function skills using the Dawson and Guare model of executive functions.
• Teach patients to identify WHY they struggle
• Demonstrate strategies for making weekly and daily plans, planning out multistep projects, managing papers, connecting present choices to future goals, using time tools to motivate task initiation, and proving that multitasking impairs productivity.
