The value of understanding the complexities experienced by an aging population is immeasurable for those actively seeking to be a positive catalyst for change in the lives of those we work with. This education will explore the various complexities of aging including common mental health disorders, dementia and the impact the Covid-19 Pandemic has had. We will also explore Survivors Guilt and its influence on the general population and front-line staff. This will include common therapeutic modalities, methods of effective communication and maintaining a trauma informed care approach within all of our interactions and efforts.
