Given the societal taboos against discussing sexuality especially when it centers on older adults, this training will offer social workers a unique opportunity to apply current research and resources to their clinical and administrative practice with older adults. The focus of this highly-engaging webinar is on improving social workers’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes regarding the impacts of aging on sexuality, the sexual challenges of aging, and the possibilities of pleasure for older adults with an emphasis on application to working with an aging population. Participants will benefit from the knowledge, skills, and abilities of an educator and a therapist both focusing on older adults and their sexuality.
This program has been approved for 1 CEU by The Commission for Case Manager Certification and National Association for Social Workers to provide continuing education credit to CCM® board-certified case managers and NASW certified social workers.For more information regarding contact hours, please email email@example.com.
