Event description

Description

Trainer(s): Lori Daniels, Ph.D., LCSW

Details: Baby-boomers are now aging into the geriatric category and health care providers are challenged to meet the demand more than ever in history over the next 30 years. Within the aging baby-boomer group is the sub-set of aging veterans from the Vietnam War, many of whom are diagnosed with PTSD. Meanwhile, a vast majority of traumatic stress treatment has emerged in the past 30 years based upon younger adults, including evidenced-based practices for PTSD. This presentation attempts to bridge the gap between the aging trauma survivor and current PTSD therapies, discussing client-centered interventions that focus on grief & PTSD, as well as interventions used within the gerontology field.

Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to state the current trend of aging in the US, and specific needs of older adult survivors

  2. Attendees will be able to list at least 1 type of intervention for PTSD that also is geared toward aging adults

  3. Participants will be able to state how grief, loss, aging, and PTSD are related to one another when working with aging trauma survivors
