Aging Mindfully: Clinical Interventions for Mid-Life & Beyond

09:30 am - 09/14/2018

@ Ridgeview Institute

3995 S Cobb Dr SE
Smyrna GA  30080



By 2020, the population of Americans ages 55 to 64 will have grown 73 percent since the year 2000. As these generations encounter the losses and opportunities of the golden years, a unique model of aging emerges requiring new skills for elders and health care providers. While many of the ‘youth generation’ will enjoy unprecedented health, vitality, and an extended life span, acceptance of aging may be hard won, exacerbating the challenges of this transition. Drawing primarily from cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness, this experiential workshop offers a research-based, integrative approach to treatment of the anxiety, depression, and grief that frequently accompany the aging process. You will explore the factors predicting successful aging through a brief review of related research, clinical examples, and interventions designed to promote each of the factors. Dyadic and small group work will facilitate clinical application. Options for sequencing and individualizing interventions will be discussed. Handouts with detailed interventions will further support application. You will leave this seminar with a deeper understanding of aging and renewal along with new, effective tools to address this process.
