Geriatric Mental Health Specialist Workshops

As of February 2021, Sound Generations has taken on the coordination of Geriatric Mental Health Specialist Workshops. These workshops have previously been coordinated by Karen Kent, LMHC, GMHS and more recently by Terri Haaga, MSW, LICSW, GMHS. These six-hour workshops held once a month provide licensed professionals with the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units (CEU) and stay up-to-date on best practices in the geriatric mental health field. The classes offered qualify for the 100 hours of training required by the State of Washington for the Geriatric Mental Health Specialist certification. Sound Generations recognizes that maintaining good mental health is a vital part of the aging process and practitioners need to keep abreast of trends and treatment in this field. We want to ensure service providers have access to this valuable information for years to come, so that strong mental health is prioritized among our aging population. Previous workshops have focused on Dementia/Delirium- Diagnosis and Treatment, Alternative Way of Working with Seniors, End of live Conversations, Elder Law and Pharmacology, Caregivers of Older Adults- Conflict and Cooperation, Elder Abuse and Neglect, Older Adult Assessments, Navigating Systems for Elders and more.
