Linda Levine Madori Ph.D.

Professor | Artist | Researcher

Having worked in dementia care for many years, I was thrilled to help bring Dr. Linda Levine Madori’s TTAP Method to aging network personnel around New York State.  Over 175 participants completed the one day certificate TTAP Method training program in November and December 2011 at six locations around the state. The Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming training was the most successful course of the quarter. Feedback documented that the trainees appreciated the content as well as the instructor; one trainee noted, “Presenter was knowledgeable, utilized active experiences & related to each discipline present.” I hope you enjoy Dr. Levine Madori’s recent book which is the first of its kind to bring “ACTIVE TREATMENT guidelines” for dementia care to adult day programs, in-home services, assisted living centers and nursing homes."

Dr. Linda Levine Madori, has explored the relationship of arts, alzheimer’s and aging over the past 30 years. The Licensed Creative Arts Therapist is the author of a new, breakthrough book, Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming for Older Adults-TTAP Method . This multimodal approach is grounded in the past decade of brain research, which has discovered that the brain has the ability to grow in mass and density when repetitively stimulated. Coupled with these recent neurological discoveries, the TTAP Method® identifies and systematically structures specific learning styles (Bloom’s Taxonomy) which are identified in each program protocol. Therefore, TTAP Method® is the first of its kind to identify, assess, plan, and implement therapeutic interactions that can be documented through organizational charts and graphs and most importantly replicated, thus providing the identified “best practices “ of the National Alzheimer’s Association.

The TTAP Method systematizes through a themed centered approach the therapeutic use of music, guided imagery, painting, movement, poetry, sculpture, writing and poetry, photography, themed events, food and sensory programs.  Research on the TTAP Method® has been published in 3 peer reviewed journals, demonstrating significant positive correlations to increase in cognition, social stimulation and enhance overall quality of life in individuals diagnosed with mild, moderate and advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease (Levine Madori, 2005, 2007, Alders, 2008, Levine Madori 2009a, 2009b, 2009c).

In 2009, Dr. Levine Madori has developed TTAP Method® Certificate Training Programs for healthcare professionals, and TTAP Method® Training Programs for caregivers. The TTAP Method® provides the answer to developing person centered programming for the well elderly, community day programs, assisted living, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Gero-psychiatic units, senior housing, and family and caregiver educational forums.
