Making Peace with the Past:
The Impact of Emotional Trauma on Elder Well-Being
(and the Importance of Trauma-Informed Care!)
Wednesday, March 9
The Ithaca College Gerontology Institute
at the Country Inn & Suites
1100 Danby Road (Route 96B), Ithaca, NY.
Early trauma is associated with increased incidence of chronic illness and depression in Elderhood, a time when Elders seek meaning in their lives and to resolve long-standing issues.
This session explores how person-directed, trauma-informed treatments can be used with Elders and care partners to integrate mind, body, and spirit, easing anxiety and depression and supporting The Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being™. Case studies will emphasize efficacy as well as explore mental health issues as they present in different care settings, and how to harness the unique gifts of this developmental stage.
Please Register here:
