Upcoming Continuing Education Programs
Increasing Resilience for Older Adults & Families June 14, 2019 11:00-12:30 Location: 29466 Pintail Drive, #9 Easton, MD presented by Maggie Black, Psy.D.
Bouncing back from illness or other life challenges gets harder as we age. This live-in-person workshop will focus on the cognitive-behavioral, emotional, and mindfulness evidence-based methods that have been shown to foster resilience. Strategies to overcome reluctance that some older adults may have about seeking mental health treatment and/or employing new approaches to challenges will also be reviewed.

Driving as we age
Most of us don’t want to give up driving when we “reach that certain age.” Driving signifies coming of age, independence and a way to get to the grocery store. None of us want to believe that as we age, we aren’t as safe to drive as we once were.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are more than 42 million licenesed drivers over the age of 65. Fatal crashes increase in those drivers past the age of 70, with greater risk for those over 85.
But you might say to yourself (or your family) that you are the exception. You have been driving since you were 16, and have never had a ticket or accident. Yet individuals over the age of 65 are more likely to have medical problems and taking more medications than those between the ages of 24-64. Changes in memory, functioning, reaction time as well as changes in attention and concentration all can potentially impact the ability to drive safely.
Please be honest with yourself, your doctor and your family about the risk of driving as you age. The ability to drive safely not only impacts the individual but also impacts the general public. For more information about safe driving tips, please visit the CDC.
When life throws us curve balls
The challenges we face as we age, whether you are a "younger" or "older" adult, can be difficult. This can include declining physical health of yourself or a loved one, loss of independence, dementia, fatigue from caregiving, or issues of grief & loss. Your family may be emotionally or physically unavailable. Sometimes, these challenges lead to symptoms of depression and/or anxiety.
