Despite the sweltering heat, this workshop drew more than 100 participants, possibly because a Clinical Psychologist training program was conducted beforehand. More than 30 people attended the Basic Lecture on Dementia III, a branch lecture of the main course. The workshop turned out to be a "heating" one.
