Educational Objectives:

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of ageism and the impact of ageism on older adults.
  • Discuss health and mental health disparities disproportionately experienced by African American and Latin-X older adults and LGTBQ older adults
  • Summarize common mental health conditions among older adults and recommended evidence-based treatment modalities
  • Describe dementia disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Utilize a framework for assessing for dementia disorders in mental health practice
  • Apply a treatment model for working with adults with dementia disorders and their families

Workshop Description:

The population of the United States is aging at significant rates. In fact, by 2034, there will be more people aged 65 and older than under the age of 18. Thus, it is imperative that mental health providers understand mental health concerns that commonly affect older adults. This workshop will highlight and dispel myths related to older adults and aging, discuss the importance of equity and inclusion for older adults in mental health care, explore the impact of current stressors affecting older adults (e.g., COVID and racism/health disparities), review common mental health conditions in aging and recommended treatment modalities, and discuss neurocognitive disorders (i.e., dementia disorders), including common issues that arise with individuals and families, as well as for mental health providers

This workshop will discuss intersecting diversity variables as they relate to older adults, including the importance of honoring the unique identity of each older adult. This workshop will also review intersections of age with identity variables such as race and sexual orientation, the cumulative effect of racism on African American older adults, and will discuss health disparities in aging (e.g., health disparities related to COVID, health disparities related to dementia disorders).
