Medical Aid in Dying: The Basics

ID: 1139WEB

In August of 2019, the NJ Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act (MAID) took effect. MAID allows an adult New Jersey resident, who has the capacity to make health care decisions and who has been determined to be terminally ill, to obtain medication to self-administer to end their life. This webinar will examine the details and ethical implications of the law for both patients and providers. We will explore the roles that social workers, care managers and others may play as patients seek to access medical aid in dying. These roles could include capacity evaluations, assistance in finding providers participating in MAID, counseling on end-of-life care alternatives, witnessing documents, and attending deaths. We will also review the data on assisted dying in Oregon, which may help to guide our own work. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]

Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070WEB

This webinar will dispel the all-too-common assumption that psychotherapy and counseling are not effective treatment modalities with senior adults. Contrary to the belief that seniors are "inflexible and stuck in their ways" as well as having diminished cognitive and reflective capacity, studies indicate that they can benefit as much from these modalities as younger persons, albeit with some different approaches, techniques and goals. In this workshop we will consider the special strengths and challenges of senior adults, the place of their particular life cycle issues and how to understand and use transference, resistance, support and interpretation in working with this population. Many case examples and exercises will be offered. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]
