The field of Geriatrics is changing for psychologist and other professionals who provide services to the senior population. We are faced with new legislations which has resulted in reductions in payment and increased reporting. Senior health consumers have a stronger voice in affecting payments to providers, choosing their health care providers and facilities through increased information on the internet and are actively pursued in marketing efforts.  At the same time, clinical psychologists need to refocus their efforts on concentrating on quality of life issues since the demands of this group are evolving. This is both a challenging and exciting time for psychologist and mental health providers in the geriatric field.

1. Attendees can expect to:1.Describe ongoing changes in field of geriatric psychology,
2. Anaylze Challenges in Geriatric field,
3. Describe new requirements in Geriatric psychology,
4. Describe new behavioral theories affecting geriatric population,
5. Discuss changes in geriatric population and new demands placed on geriatric professionals

Over 49 million Americans care for aging parents and disabled spouses each year. In this workshop by AARP.com columnist and the author of The Emotional Survival Guide for Caregivers, we will review research findings on the psychological and medical effects of long-term caregiving and discuss how modifying caregiver beliefs (including attributions, existential/spiritual meanings and attitudes towards giving and receiving help) can increase caregiver resilience and strengthen family ties. Video clips and transcripts will be used to demonstrate working with overwhelmed individual caregivers, contentious couples and divided sibling groups.

1. Review research findings on negative and positive psychological and medical effects of long-term family caregiving
2. Describe two models of family stress and coping
3. List 7 empirically supported means for increasing caregiver resilience
4. Outline 4 areas of caregiver belief that significantly impact caregivers’ emotional responses to caregiving
5  Explain 3 clinical methods for modifying maladaptive caregiver beliefs to enhance caregiver resilience
