Social Work Practice With Elders
Students develop specific knowledge about certain bio-psycho-social issues of aging, such as health concerns and well being, love and intimacy, support systems, care-giving and living arrangements, productive roles and activities, elder resilience and dying-bereavement-widowhood. They explore aging internationally and cross-culturally and analyze such elder social policies as income security, health, and long term care. This knowledge is applied to such social work practices as assessment and intervention, case management, advocacy and evaluation.
