Our online course, Psychology of Aging and Positive Psychology
Between 1900 and 2000, American life expectancy jumped from 47 to 77 years. Advances in genetic engineering, tissue engineering, stem cell therapies, nanotechnology, hormone therapies, and other fields are likely to foster a longevity revolution in which lifespans get much longer and people look and function younger at older ages.
This course on Psychology of Aging
and Positive Psychology explores what the research on aging and on centenarians (people 100+ years old) can teach us about living longer, healthier, and happier lives. It focuses on how we, as therapists, can apply this knowledge to our clients (and to ourselves).
What does it take to live well into your hundreds?
While 25% is genetic, 75% depends on your thinking and the lifestyle you choose. Positive psychology and research on vital centenarians have a lot to say about how to live a longer, healthier, happier life.
Psychology of Aging and Positive Psychology is offered for 3 CE Credits and will teach you how to apply positive psychology and anti-aging research to understand the aging process and help your clients be healthier and happier. The course identifies 33 beliefs that promote living longer, healthier, and happier.
