Think groups: The why and how of social brain training

Meeting Description:
People join together in a group for lifelong learning programs, fitness, and social events, yet so much of brain health software is aimed at individual use. The weight of the brain health science suggests that social-based brain training interventions provide tremendous benefits across the cognitive continuum, including skills training, intellectual engagement and strategy learning. After a quick review of the science, you will learn how to use a social-based model in the development and implementation of brain health programs.
