Confronting the Complexities of Aging: What We All Need to Know January 21, 2024
(6 CME/CE Credits)
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, January 17, 2024
We know that older adults represent an increasingly large demographic. This is an opportunity for clinicians and anyone who works in the field of aging, anyone who is interested in aging issues, and anyone personally caring for an aging loved one.
The design for the day will include both interactive and didactic segments and facilitated discussion.
Presentations will include adult developmental psychology, as well as the medical and sociocultural influences on aging. The conference will also address why and how psychotherapy with older adults belongs in the toolbox of everyone who confronts aging as a “carer.”
The program will enlighten and provide important knowledge and skills to better serve aging adults in a wide range of settings – home, senior living community, hospital, nursing home, senior center, to cite just a few.
Who should attend?
The program is extended to members of the New Washington School of Psychiatry and all organizations counting among its membership psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, licensed counselors, mental health students, and other mental health providers who are interested in psychodynamic theory, practice and perspectives.
