Course Description:
This course is based on an article published by the National Institute of Aging: a division of the National Institute of Health in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO). The article can also be found on the National Institute of Aging website. The publication describes in detail the sociological phenomena of the aging on a global level. According to the publication, the current situation is unprecedented. We will for the first time ever have older people than children and more people who are extremely old as well. 
 
The article goes to describe an overview of the global phenomena as well as a primer on humanity aging. It describes in detail the contributing factors such as people living longer, new disease patterns, and how longer lives equals more individuals with disabilities. It describes the latest data on aging and health, providing social workers, psychologists and other practitioners with useful information for shaping their clinical practice and treating older clients within the context of the phenomena. 
 
The costs of aging and health care are also reviewed as is the interrelationship between health and work as we age. Lastly the changing role of the family in working with the aging is discussed in detail. Multiple resources are also provided at the end of the publication. 
 
This is a well written article. The authors take a macro look at a complex phenomenon and apply it to working with individuals and families in a real way. This course is an excellent reference for social workers, nurses and mental health professionals that work with the elderly.
 
Nurses, social workers, psychologists, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course on aging.
