About Mariposa Training

Mariposa Training is a leading provider of internet-based senior and geriatric health care training for administrators, nurses and staff caring for the elderly. Among the topics covered on mariposatraining.com include advanced directives, dementia care training, delirium care training, alternatives to medication, survey management, MDS 3.0, and senior sexuality. The courses are specifically designed for staff in long term care facilities and nursing home facilities, though the topics covered are of value for anyone caring for the elderly.

He has numerous publications within the areas of psychosocial assessment, gerontology, self-efficacy, self determination and psychological well-being, as well as collaborative research methodologies.
