This course examines human aging from a multidisciplinary and developmental perspective. The course will focus on the adult years of the life span. The social-psychological factors involved in adjustments to the aging process, to retirement, to family, to leisure, to aloneness, to death and bereavement will be discussed together with such special concerns of the elderly as widowhood, finances, religion, sexuality and health problems. Rehabilitative strategies such as remotivation and reality orientation are included.
*Chat Hours provide an opportunity for the instructor and students to communicate in "real time". It is an informative and interactive session where course related questions, answers, and discussions take place. While student attendance during chat hours is not required, it is highly recommended. Weekly chat sessions are archived for students who are not able to participate in the live chat sessions at the scheduled times.
