Behavioral Health & Aging Certificate Program

PCA’s flagship Behavioral Health & Aging Certificate Program is set to kick off on Tuesday, January 31, 2023. There are still seats available for this graduate-level program taught by Nancy Morrow, Reni Gibney & Marian Mullahy.

The Program requires participants to complete 48 hours of classroom training (16 half-day sessions) and five written work projects. The curriculum tries to balance theoretical and applied considerations, emphasizing state of the art understandings of the current geriatric behavioral health literature as well as best clinical practices. Major topical areas include:

  • An overview of the aging process, with particular focus on the behavioral health implications of aging
  • A survey of behavioral illness in late life, including schizophrenia, anxiety disorders and depression
  • Consideration of alcohol abuse and dementia in older adults

For those of you who need CEUs, this 16-week, 48-hour (3hrs./week) series offers 3 CEUs for each session you attend. For more details on the course and registration information, please visit our training website at https://pca-training-catalog-2022-2023.coursestorm.com/course/behavioral-health-aging-certificate-program.
