Depression in Older Adults

Many people believe that depression is a normal part of growing older. However, research tells us that depressive disorders are not a function of aging, but rather a common group of mental disorders that can be successfully treated. While most older adults do not suffer from a depressive disorder, those who do tend to struggle with emotional and physical symptoms that greatly impede their ability to age well and maintain a satisfactory quality of life. This course is appropriate for clinicians with a basic or intermediate knowledge of working with individuals with late-life depression. It is intended to help human service professionals identify the most common symptoms of a depressive disorder and familiarize them with the major types of effective clinical and psychosocial treatments available for older adults. Employing the interactive exercises and case vignettes in this course will teach you the skills you need to recognize depressive disorders among the older adults with whom you work, and provide them with the best information, support, and resources for treatment.
