This 2-day course will explore myths and stereotypes of aging, which may influence your ability to effectively assess and treat the elderly and their children and grandchildren who may be struggling to assist them with a myriad of physical, psychological and social needs. Moreover, when a senior has become a legal guardian of his or her grandchildren, prompt and appropriate assessment of mental status changes is crucial for meeting the needs of both ends of the lifespan. Topics will include: distinguishing "normal" aging changes in intellectual, cognitive and memory functioning from those which are a consequence of disease; introduction to the biopsychosocial model of assessment and Psychotherapeutic treatment of older adults.
