Understanding Psychological Processes in Later Life for the Delivery of Aging Services

Description:
This course focuses on psychological processes in the second half of life. Administrators and managers of aging services need a foundation in the psychological issues that accompany the aging process. The course is focused primarily on normal aging and psychopathology. Of special interest is the question of whether there are any systematic, intrinsic, and psychological or personality changes associated with development in later life and how these issues condition the delivery of services. During the semester, the course focuses on late-life transitions, continuities, and discontinuities, as well as the processes used to cope with each of these. The course analyzes normal age-related psychological changes, common psychopathologies, Alzheimers disease, and the psychodynamics of caregiving for older adults. The policy implications of psychological changes in later life are presented with attention to the delivery of effective and efficient services.
