Normal Aging & Geriatric Syndromes/Conditions

MODULE 1: September 10 — 23, 2018
Social workers can better work with older adults by first understanding normal aging and the common geriatric syndromes with which older individuals struggle. Participants will look at normal aging from a biopsychosocial perspective, including how geriatric conditions affect the quality of life of clients and their families. Explore aging from the perspective of dissociating normal aging from disease processes and learn how to integrate this knowledge into your social work practice.
