1.5 Category I CEUs
Presented by: Mimi Kraus, LCSW-C
Developmental stages do not end when we reach adulthood. The developmental changes that occur throughout adult life affect perspective, sense of self and view of one’s place in society, all of which impact mental health and well-being.
This workshop will explore the various stages individuals experience while transitioning into adulthood, navigating middle age, and confronting early signs of old age. Gaining a deeper comprehension of how people
continually evolve as they age will enable you to assist clients in appreciating and effectively managing each phase of life.
As a result of this training, participants will:
- Review common elements in major theories of adult development.
- Understand tools for assessing an adult client’s developmental stage.
- Explore personality inventories and the DSM 5 as relates to adult development.
- Learn how to use those tools to inform treatment plan goals.
