A mind model is not just a “super mind map” but rather something more that incorporates many different types of models and mapping methods as specialized cases.
The following image is a “mind model” of selected mind model types that can fall within the domain of mind modeling and all of which can be produced with an advanced mind mapping program. [My preference is iMindMap, but there are other mind mapping programs that are general enough to produce many kinds of mind models, if not all.]
Ever wonder how a mind model differs from the mind map it typically looks like. It’s all about the intent of the diagram and the information that guided its development. This mind model explains the difference.
Dr Rita Jablonski-Jaudon has a really nice article on 10 rules to follow in order to provide effective, compassionate, and comprehensive Alzheimer’s caregiving. Dr. Jablonski-Jaudon is an expert on Alzheimer’s care, and I have greatly respected her judgment over the decade I have known of her work.
The article may be accessed here. Clicking the link will open a new window.
I wondered if the information could be presented in a somewhat more compelling way visually as a mind model (AKA mind map) with a very large (some would say excessive) number of images embedded in the diagram.
So I tried this afternoon. I like the result; hopefully Dr Jablonski-Jaudon will also. Spend a few minutes looking at this and the images, and I suspect you may view caregiving in a somewhat different way.
Note that you should read the original short article either before or after looking at the mind map. There are some further explanations of concepts in the original piece.
