MFT-6118 - Gerontology and Systemic Intervention

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 12

This course deals with the biological, social, cognitive, and psychological aspects of aging. Ancillary aspects of aging are also explored, including issues related to long-term care, end of life issues, the cultural context of human development, and the impact of socioeconomic status (especially poverty) on older adults. A significant focus of the course is the application of systemic treatment/theory to the older adult population and multigenerational families. Students will explore ethical dilemmas that might arise while working in gerontological settings and examine current research literature addressing systemic work with older adults, their families, and larger social systems.
