CE Event: Understanding and Improving Relationships in Later Life
Featuring Donna Gapas, LCSW
Relationships in older adults are varied, rich and complex. The quality of these relationships has an enormous impact on the coping ability of clients and their caregivers. Providers of treatment are often drawn into interpersonal dynamics that evolve from complex family histories and depleted caregivers. In this webinar, aging trends, developmental theories, and treatment issues related to late life relationships will be explored. Participants will gain a better understanding of the impact of these dynamics on the care of clients in community and medically based settings. Solutions to assisting clients and their family members in their interactions with one another while they face treatment issues, illness, addiction, death, grief and loss will be offered. Opportunities to assist clients who are seeking peace and resolution in their relationships will also be discussed.
