With the growing number of the aging population, the call for counselors to understand the developmental processes of all clients is essential. Counselors should also take specific opportunities to learn about issues impacting older adults from a social justice lens and learn about the multiple forms of ageism.
Ageism occurs when someone is discriminated against based on their age, and this can happen at both ends of the lifespan (Raymer et al., 2017). This presentation will focus on topics such as ageist and reverse ageism, age, related mental health concerns, the effects of race, class, ethnicity, gender, and sexual identity as it relates to aging and ageism, and competencies related to working with older clients. Topics will be discussed in the context of the lifespan as a whole, and looking at the client from a humanistic model. Implications for counseling students, educators, and practitioners will be provided.
After the presentation attendees will be able to:
- Recognize the impact of ageism on clients at various points in the lifespan.
- Discuss specific topics related to ageism and culturally specific topics associated with aging
- Apply cultural competencies as applicable to working with older adults.
