Coping with Functional Loss and Environmental Changes

This workshop focuses on the impact of functional losses and environmental changes experienced throughout the aging process and the varied coping responses that are possible. Attention will be given to productive and unproductive coping mechanisms. The impact of demographic factors (gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status) on the use and results of various coping strategies will be examined. Interventions which help aging adults cope with functional losses and environmental changes will be emphasized.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
