Communication with Elders – New 2-Hour Online Continuing Education Course from PDResources
Communication is the foundation of service delivery for social workers and – with the increasing number of older people in the United States – it is vital to communicate effectively and respectfully with elders.
Communication with Elders is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course for social workers that provides an overview of aging changes that affect communication, dysfunctional communication habits to avoid, and strategies for appropriate communication with elders.
The more effective the communication, the more effective treatment will be – and the more cost effective. Communication also helps the clinician understand the whole person: the emotional, social, and financial realities that affect response to treatment and ability to comply.
