In this presentation, Don Desonier will explore the complex dynamic around acknowledging, and even embracing, the existence of “bad news”-be that a diagnosis of cognitive impairment, a chronic illness, or simply facing into the realities and challenges associated with aging.

Don Desonier, JD, Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®, has a Certificate in Gerontology from the University of Washington Professional and Continuing Education Program. He also has a Juris Doctor degree, and has been trained as an Elder and Adult Family Mediator.
