Course Description:
This course is based on chapter five of a publication by the Surgeon General’s office entitled; Mental Health: A report by the Surgeon General. The report is also on the SAMSHA website. Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General – Table of Contents. This is a detailed article that first reviews normal developmental milestones of aging, then considers mental disorders in older people—their diagnosis and treatment. Finally, the chapter reviews the supports for older persons that extend beyond traditional, formal treatment settings.  This publication provides excellent information for the mental health professional, especially for those clinicians who work with older adults and provides the practitioner with a great deal of much needed information.

 

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and certified addiction professionals can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as dieticians and nutritionists who may work with the elderly.   This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners.

Author:  Surgeon General
