WEBINAR: Treating Adults in Later Life

This workshop is intended to have both didactic and experiential/interactive components. It will therefore be a participatory event where delegates engage and interact with each other. Led by a presenter with clinical and research experience related to mental health in later life, this workshop should provide participants with at least 3 tangible perspectives, skills, and/or techniques (i.e., learning outcomes). If this workshop works as planned it should be innovative, interactive, inclusive, integrative, developmental, provocative, logistically sound, and provide both novice and experienced psychologists with an opportunity to continue their professional development.
