The Geriatric Mental Wellness Alliance and The Trauma Institute of Orange County Presents Trauma, Aging and the Implications for Treatment
This presentation will focus on the impact of earlier trauma on the way individuals experience aging, illness, and helplessness as patients, as well as on the way the encounter with trauma victims impacts providers. The main learning objectives will be to allow providers to understand the interactions between trauma and aging, be aware of the individual variability in responses to trauma, and the often disguised presentation of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in elderly trauma survivors.
The lecture will describe the pervasive reality of dehumanization in modern medical settings, its functional and non-functional causes, and factors that place elderly trauma survivors at an elevated risk for such treatment.
