Maximilian Fuentes Fuhrmann, PhD, ABPP presents a live 2-day virtual professional training program on Aging and Long Term Care.

In this training, myths and stereotypes of aging will be explored, which may influence your ability to effectively assess and treat older adults, and their children and grandchildren who may be struggling to assist them with a myriad of physical, psychological and social needs. To facilitate interactivity there will be six case studies reviewed and discussed.

This training will review distinguishing “normal” aging changes in intellectual, cognitive and memory functioning from those which are a consequence of disease; introduction to the biopsychosocial model of assessment and psychotherapeutic treatment of older adults; and issues involved when working with the elderly and their families when they confront long-term care. You will also have a chance to challenge assumptions about your own aging and potentially look at issues that may impact how you plan for your life as a senior.

This training is intended for professionals at any career stage, including, licensed psychotherapists working in clinical settings, including medical, behavioral or long term care environments.

Key topics will include:

  1. The biopsychosocial model of assessment of the elderly
  2. Common mental health diagnostic and treatment issues
  3. Countertransference issues, which may negatively affect your work
  4. Psychotherapeutic treatment approaches, 5) Factors that are believed to contribute to longevity
  5. How to age well
  6. How to motivate elderly clients to change behavior. Psychometric assessment of neurocognitive disorders, depression and anxiety will be discussed
