Social Work Practice with Baby Boomers: It Will Not be Business as Usual (4CEs)
This course will examine social work practice as we age and is designed for social workers who work with older adults, their relatives, and those who serve as their caregivers. Baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) represent some 78 million Americans and constitute a larger proportion of residents in Maine than in any other state in the nation. Boomers bring a different set of values, attitudes, and expectations than their parents and grandparents. Understanding the boomer mentality will be essential to insure the delivery of effective gerontological social work services into the future. Th is workshop will provide attendees with a comprehensive, multidimensional profile of the baby boomer cohort and offer elements of a nontraditional philosophy and orientation to service planning and the delivery of set of specialized interventive strategies that will be positively received by boomer consumers
