Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070

This workshop 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.

The Secret Life of Hoarding

ID: 1130

According to the International OCD Foundation (IOCD): "Hoarding has been a hidden disorder for many years and before the early 1990?s, there was little research on topic." Increased awareness with hoarding, throughout the lifespan, has occurred due to clinical issues such as unhealthy living conditions that impact individuals, families, and communities. This workshop, "The Secret Life of Hoarding" will concentrate on the older adult who meets the criteria of Hoarding Disorder as per the DSM 5. Participants will practice skills in working with the older adult who meets this criteria as well as identifying strategies for family members who are involved with an older adult who is diagnosed with this disorder.
