    A Fitting Denouement: Understanding and Meeting the Psychological Needs of Older Adults

    Friday, June 28, 2019, 5:15-7:00 p.m.

    Betsy Bates Freed, PsyD

    1.5 hours


    Description:


    In just 10 years, the last Baby Boomer will turn 65 and for the first time in American history, older adults will outnumber children in the U.S. One in 5 U.S. residents will be collecting Social Security, embarking on retirement, and facing the rewards and the considerable challenges of spending an average 14-18 years in a life stage rarely reached in their grandparents’ time. Yet the Institute of Medicine (2012) has concluded that the mental health workforce is unequipped, unprepared and understaffed to handle the special needs of the vast “vulnerable and underserved” population. This workshop will focus on how psychologists can be aware and attuned to the developmental, physical, social, and existential issues common in older adults, including the young old (65-75), middle old (75-85) and the burgeoning population of the oldest old (85+). Manifestation of common mental health diagnoses (especially anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and PTSD) in older adults, as well as an overview and practical diagnostic clues to diagnoses specific to older patients (especially dementia and delirium) will be reviewed. Challenges of key comorbidities, polypharmacy, and practical issues of aging will be underscored. Psychologists will be challenged to consider adjustments to their offices, therapeutic style, and billing to accommodate older adults, and will learn how core orientations (cognitive-behavioral, narrative, family systems, psychodynamic, existential) can be applied to the unique needs of this population. Finally, psychologists will learn key legal and ethical issues pertinent to psychological care of older adults.


    Timed Outline:


    5:15-5:30pm – Greet, sign in, and socialize

    5:30-5:35pm – Introduction of speaker and opening remarks

    5:35-6:45pm – Presentation of topic (following the above description and objectives)

    6:45-7:00pm – Q&A/evaluations


    Goals and Objectives:


    Attendees will be able to:

    1. Recognize demographic issues related to the aging of America and extrapolate how these changes may apply to unmet psychological needs of older adults in their community and in their practice.   

    2. Define and analyze the “cohort” generational experiences and impacts of shared life events on the psychological outlook of today’s older adults and the populations entering developmental stages associated with the decades of aging from 65-85 and beyond.

    3. Describe the ways in which common psychiatric conditions are manifested in older adults and extrapolate how core therapeutic features of various psychological orientations can be adjusted and adapted to be efficacious for this population.

    4. Identify key diagnostic features of early dementia and delirium and formulate ways in which psychologists can support patients and family members in coping with these diagnoses, balancing safety with the need for autonomy, identity enhancement, and preservation of life’s purpose and joy.

    5. Summarize key physical and practical challenges unique to aging and develop a strategy aimed at helping older adults to negotiate these potential barriers to a meaningful life through enhancing office and communication access, coordinating multidisciplinary care, encouraging meaningful life review and legacy building, and supporting and being present for existential exploration at the end of life.

    6. Incorporate ethical and legal principles associated with psychological support of older adults and their families, drawing on APA Guidelines and laws of the State of California.

    Digital Overuse: The Clinician’s Role in Assessment and Intervention

    Winifred Lender, Ph.D.

    Santa Barbara County Psychological Association 

    Oct 18, 2019


    Description:


    The purpose of this workshop is to summarize the current knowledge base on the use and overuse digital devices by children, adolescents, and adults and the link to sleep issues, anxiety, and depression. Case vignettes will be utilized to illustrate the problem of digital overuse. Attention will be given to how a clinician can integrate an assessment of digital use into their intake interview and the use of self-report measures that address digital overuse.  The role of the clinician in evaluating digital overuse and developing specific interventions to support more healthy digital use balance will be reviewed.


    Timed Outline:


    5:15-5:30pm – Greet, sign in, and socialize

    5:30-5:35pm – Introduction of speaker and opening remarks

    5:35-6:45pm – Presentation of topic (following the above description and objectives)

    6:45-7:00pm – Q&A/evaluations


    Goals and Objectives:


    Attendees will be able to:

    1. Review research on the current use of digital devices amongst children, teens, and adults and the evidence of digital addictions.

    2. Describe case study vignettes that reflect digital overuse as a precursor to sleep problems, anxiety and depression.

    3. Review the importance of assessing digital use and real world/virtual world balance in intake interviews and self-report measures. Identify specific assessment tools to assess the severity of overuse.

    4. Identify interventions for developing balance in digital usage and determine which will be most effective for certain populations.
