“My supervising staff members at Bergen Regional Medical Center have received TTAP Method Certification. Thanks to the implementation of the TTAP method, Bergen Regional Medical Center in New Jersey is now on the forefront in activities.  Dr. Linda Madori’s “Transcending Dementia through the TTAP Method” has brought knowledge to the Therapeutic Recreation Staff which has been enhanced the residents’ quality of life at BRMC. I also recommend this book for families who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease. This book provides a new approach on how to deal with this disease and the benefits of using the TTAP method.”

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.
