Every day mental illnesses and cognitive impairment negatively impact quality of life for older adults. Generational stigma, age-related triggers, changes in cognitive and mental health and reluctance to acknowledge a diagnosis are just some of the issues professionals and families face. This interactive ethics program will offer a look at the most commonly diagnosed mental health and cognitive problems for seniors and the most ethical and effective treatments. The discussion will also focus on ethical strategies on how to work with a cohort often reluctant to accept psychiatric services.
This content is designed for beginner and intermediate social workers & managers who have practiced in counseling settings and/or with older adults.
