CEU WEBINAR: "I'm Lonely and Sad — Depression in Later Stages of Life"
DESCRIPTION: Depression is very common as people age, although not always explored or addressed. Due to multiple medical complications, numerous losses, changes in lifestyle and financial constraints, many emotions arise and symptoms of depression are more prevalent. In addition, our elderly clients are in the stage of Ego Integrity vs. Despair and are experiencing a life review. Therefore, when working with seniors, a clinician may have to address experiences such as childhood traumas, difficult life events and even both death and suicidal ideations. This webinar will focus on depression in the elderly, what this diagnosis can mean for your client and how clinicians can assess and support an individual in the later stages of life.
