This course is targeted for social workers, case managers, nurses, and counselors.


It is no secret that the United States population is growing older.  The aging population will double in the coming decades, affecting the social and health systems that our clients and families depend upon. Helping professionals will need to adopt a new mindset of well-being in relation to the aging process.  Join acclaimed author and board-certified adult and geriatric psychiatrist, Marc Agronin, MD, for this engaging educational experience as he presents a hopeful and practical guide to aging.  Dr. Agronin’s recent research aims to no longer see aging as an implacable enemy and start seeing it as a developmental force for enhancing well-being, meaning, and longevity.  Participants will learn innovative, evidence-based practices to create belonging and empowerment and help  broaden the lens through which they view the aging process.


  • Summarize the concept of well-being in relation to the aging process.
  • Identify the aspects of creating belonging, empowerment, and mastery.
  • Describe strategies to improve the ways you value the aging process.
