Developmental Milestones and Mental Health Issues in Older Adults

The focus of this course is the older adult population of the United States, a population that will soon comprise over 50% of the nation. In the 1980s, degree programs with the designation “geriatric” began to spring up across the country. Unfortunately, they were for the most part, short-lived. Whether due to ageism or a lack of apparent urgency of the need for geriatric specialists, their demise has left the helping professions far short of the needed expertise to adequately and effectively care for a huge cohort of older persons better known as the baby boomers. This course is intended to provide you (psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other health or social service professionals) with an understanding of the relationship between older adult developmental stages and challenges and behavioral health concerns. It will, in addition, introduce you to the application of this knowledge to the support of healthy aging and the prevention and treatment of behavioral health problems in the older adult population.
