What Students Say
Speaking & Training
Due to the rapidly increasing number of older adults in this country, there is a critical shortage of social workers and other professionals trained in gerontology.
I am passionate about addressing this shortage and bring nearly 30 years of experience as a consultant, guest speaker, workshop leader and teacher to my work in the field of aging.
I’ve worked with corporate executives/teams, social work professionals, students and diverse general audiences around aging and other topics as described below.
Private Practice Tips and Techniques for Social Workers
Working with Older Adults guest lectures
Social Work with Older Adults (taught 14-week graduate
course at the University of Michigan for 6 years)
Dealing with Difficult People
Understanding and Working with “The Sandwich Generation”
The Five Things We Wish Our Aging Parents Would Do
How to Identify Signs of Depression in Older Adults
How to Cope w Holiday Depression
Sexuality and Aging
Careers in Aging
In addition to these topics, I plan on hosting many more workshops, retreats and private coaching sessions in the future perhaps including:
Aging skills lab
Mini-courses on aging and working with older adults
Caregiving strategies and support
Distance learning courses on aging
I look forward to working with you to design a format and topic to meet your needs. Please contact me for further information including my fee structure.
