Come hear Benjamin T. Mast, Ph.D, discuss dementia and Alzheimers disease from a Christian perspective. Thursday, January 14th at 7pm

Dr. Mast  is a clinical psychologist and Associate Professor & Vice Chair of the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at the University of Louisville as well as an elder at Sojourn Community Church. Recently, he has been elected President of the Adult Development and Aging Division of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Mast has edited the APA Handbook on Clinical Geropsychology and has written: Second Forgetting: Remembering the Power of the Gospel in Alzheimer’s Disease.

Pastors and Christian clinicians may be especially interested in hearing Dr. Mast’s perspective since people are living longer, fuller lives into their senior years. Much of what Dr. Mast has to say on the subject will directly impact of our lives both as professional and pastoral care givers and as family members of an aging generation.
