According to statistics from the US Embassy website, there has been an “explosion” in the number of elderly in our country.  Those aged 65 and older in the US population now number 1 in every 8 Americans, and this rapid growth is expected to continue due to an increase in life expectancy. Consequently, the subject of an upcoming live webinar offered by the Institute for Psychological Sciences (IPS) should be a popular one.

Aging with Grace: A Catholic Perspective on Midlife and Senior Years, is the title of the July 17 program offered from 9:00 to 11:00 am EST.  IPS faculty member Dr. Philip Scrofani, ABPP, will explain why so many Americans perceive aging in a negative light.  He counters with a Christian model of the aging process, focusing on its “positive, transcendent dimension.”

People who can benefit from the program include mental health practitioners, pastoral care providers and any Catholic interested in learning how to recognize and assist people struggling with the issues of aging.

The course offers 2 CE credits.  The registration fee is $50 and the registration deadline is July 16 at 5:00 pm (EST). Contact Steve Grundman, PhD, IPS Director of Distance Learning, at distance.steve@ipsciences.edu or by calling 703-416-1441,ext.129.
