Workshop Title: Brain Aging 101: What Every Psychologist Should Know about Brain Health Across the Adult Lifespan

 

Workshop Description:

As the population ages, clinical psychologists of any specialty can expect to encounter older adults in their practice. Many of the presenting issues in this population are directly or indirectly associated with age-related changes in the brain. This CE will provide an overview of patterns of brain aging across the adult lifespan and the clinical correlates of these changes, including cognitive and mood symptoms. The workshop will highlight the literature on sex, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status effects on patterns of cognitive and brain aging. Finally, this CE will discuss evidence-based methods for promoting brain health across the adult lifespan. (Intermediate)

CE Credits: 3

 

Learning Objectives:

1.       Identify patterns of brain changes associated with aging from adulthood through late life.

2.       Summarize sex, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status effects on patterns of cognitive and brain aging.

3.       Explain the relationships between mood symptoms and brain aging across the adult lifespan.

4.       Describe evidence-based methods for promoting brain health across the adult lifespan.

 

Presenter Qualifications:

Dr. Vonetta Dotson is a clinical neuropsychologist with a specialization in aging (she received a gerontology certificate with her PhD in psychology). She is the director of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging and Depression laboratory at Georgia State University (GSU) and director of the GSU Brain Health Clinic, which specializes in providing neuropsychological assessments for middle-aged to older adults with concerns about cognitive decline, and also provides psychoeducational material and resources for promoting brain health. She gave a Clinician's Corner CE workshop on brain aging at APA headquarters this past June and recently gave a CE workshop on ethical decision-making in working with older adults at GSU.
