SOWK 572 - Evidence-based Policy and Practice with Older Adults

3 Credit Hours
One of three Interpersonal Practice concentration electives. This survey course provides an overview of problems and issues with the older population within the context of health and mental health care, the interventions that are ethically sound and empirically supported for addressing these problems, and the policies and regulations guiding the interventions and organizations affecting older adults in the field of social work. Attention is given to issues, interventions and programs that have been shown to treat a variety of behavioral and emotional concerns in older adults across culture, race and ethnicity. Particular interest is in the policy practice challenges to provide support for evidence-based interventions and appropriate programs for older adults.
