Originally presented: April 20, 2016 | Course length: 2.0 hours
Our profession and our clients are aging. Learn about cognitive impairment, mental health and addiction issues and the realities, risk factors and resources specific to older adults. While it is not our job to diagnose, what is our role, responsibility and opportunity? How do our biases govern our actions and behaviors? What if the issue is not with a client but with a colleague? The answers are seldom simple and never easy. Learn about the unique barriers to getting help in older adults, characteristics of older adult mental health, and the difference between dementia, grief and depression. In this program, presenters will first address the elimination of bias issues that arise in these situations. In the second half, presenters will also provide an ethical framework and practical guidance and resources for lawyers facing questions of impairment in older clients and colleagues.
