SWRK 210 - INTRODUCTION TO GERONTOLOGY
This course offers an introduction to the complex interplay of biological, psychological, and socio-cultural influences involved in healthy aging and ageism in the United States and across the globe. Issues explored include identity change and caregiving, the right to die, social work ethics, service delivery, policies related to older adults--rights and income, as well as budgetary changes in the face of retirement and/or widowhood. Students explore service agencies first hand. Highlighted is the relationship between bio-psycho-social changes, the body and minds of older adults, as this new stage of development leads to role changes, loss of independence, and often, role reversal.
