Course Description:
This course is based on an article published by the National Institute of Aging: a division of the National Institute of Health. The publication can also be found on the National Institute of Aging website. The CE course materials begin with an introduction to menopause in which the authors describe the transition through menopause and menopause happens early in some women. Signs of the menopausal transition are then reviewed including changes in the menstrual cycle, hot flashes, sleep issues and fatigue.

The article then goes on to describe what women can do to reduce menopausal symptoms. Health concerns that become more serious in post-menopausal women are reviewed including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and urinary incontinence. Recommendations for staying healthy are included with specific recommendations for nutrition; health care and lifestyle suggestions are made.

This is a very well written article. The authors take detailed medical information and simplify it with the aid of graphics that serve to aid the reader in understanding. This course is an excellent reference for all mental health and health related professionals.

Clinical social workers, licensed psychologists, licensed professional counselors, and nurses can benefit from this course on menopause. This course is also appropriate for dieticians, nutritionists and even chemical dependency counselors. Anyone who works with female clients who are middle aged can benefit from learning more about the natural processes involved in menopause. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their clinical skills with adult women.
