From the Instructor:
This course is for students, practitioners, and others who work with elders. The course will provide the conceptual framework for understanding when and how to use different advocacy strategies and practical methods for intervening when elders need help in negotiating diverse and complex service delivery systems. The overarching goal of the course is to empower both future and practicing advocates and care coordinators by imparting skills that inculcate the self-assurance and capacity to effectively solve client problems in the highly charged, highly contingent and interactive elder-service environment.
