Few people think deeply about later life and the ways our culture and others have defined it and yet, most of us are likely to have preconceptions and sometimes false beliefs about aging and old age. Most people are preoccupied with their current lives and plans for the future: education, friends, relationships, careers, finances, and other markers of adulthood. Yet all cultures convey overt or covert messages and sometimes fears about old age. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life. We will consider the importance of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender in defining people’s lives and opportunities. We will also focus on the myths and inaccuracies our culture perpetuates about aging, individuals in later life, and the process of growing old. Such beliefs not only pattern our own expectations about growing old but also have social, personal, and political consequences for older people themselves. We will also examine career opportunities in social gerontology. How gerontology developed as a field of study and the research methods used in social gerontology are also discussed.

Aging is shaped by demographic characteristics. As the population grows or shrinks and people move to different areas to live, the experience of aging in society changes. Americans aged 65 and older are currently more than 11 times the size of this group in 1900, and the proportion is increasing. This large section of society is more likely to live longer and healthier than previous generations, shaping how they will live as they age. This course presents key concepts used to describe population characteristics and how everyone’s life is patterned by demographic characteristics and changes.

Theories help us understand patterns of behaviors and aspects of social life and are shaped by history and culture. The field of gerontology seeks to understand social, behavioral, and psychological aspects of aging. Since individual aging is deeply intertwined with social change, each theory can best be understood in its relationship to the others. Not surprisingly, aging and old age have been studied from many different perspectives: that of individuals, groups, specific societies, distinct historical periods, comparative studies of societies, and so on. Some researchers seek to find similarities, and others look at change. This course will review the major theories of aging, differentiate between categories of theories, and include views on older adulthood.

Using the science of aging to improve the end of life represents a challenge, perhaps the greatest yet to face medical science. Solutions will not come easily the greatest human ingenuity will be needed to meet this challenge. Understanding longevity and life span are steps to improving the quality of health care and life as we age. This course will look at how we age biologically and the changes that occur, options for healthcare in later life, and the challenges of paying for healthcare needs of an aging population.

Who we are as adults is a process that begins in childhood and is shaped by society. Socialization is a lifelong process that only ends when we die. Social norms and how we understand ourselves can change and are shaped by the society in which we live. Our personality, who we are as individuals, can be understood through theories of development. Theorists have proposed a variety of ways that we develop and how these impact our aging process. In addition, we will explore theories of personality development with specific focus on how each of these theories informs our personalities in later life.

Friendships and connections with others play a very important role in the development and well-being of all people. However, those with developmental disabilities often have very few or no close personal connections and friendships within their communities.

This course is designed for entry-level Direct Support Professionals.

Historically, those living with developmental disabilities in the United States faced much discrimination, segregation from others and exclusion from education, work, housing, and even from routine daily activities.

This course is designed for entry-level Direct Support Professionals.

The goal of this course is to provide information that helps individuals understand the importance of diversity in the workplace and how to best support it in ways that benefit everyone.  The success of an organization, and therefor it's competiveness in the marketplace, is dependent upon its ability to understand diversity, realize its benefits, and embrace it.  Organizations that analyze their own workplace diversity and then cultivate an inclusive environment will reap the benefits.

El éxito de una organización, y por consiguiente es competitividad en el mercado, depende de su capacidad para entender la diversidad y dar cuenta de sus beneficios. Las organizaciones que analizan su propia diversidad del lugar de trabajo y luego cultivan un ambiente inclusivo obtienen los beneficios. Entender los riesgos que el alcohol y las drogas pueden llegar a ser en el área de trabajo y saber cómo crear las políticas y programas adecuados para prevenir esto, es el primer paso para lograr tener un área de trabajo libre de drogas.

In order to have a diverse workplace, managers need to first understand how people differ. Surface-level diversity is the differences in people that are immediately observable, measurable, and generally not changeable. Deep-level diversity is those differences between people that are communicated through a worker's behavior and can only be learned through extended interactions with each other.
