AGE no burden?


The new Aged Care & Counselling course examines the emotional stages and challenges faced by the elderly, and offers perspectives and information on enablement, intervention, and specific counselling techniques.

Written by writers who are highly qualified and experienced in counselling, this course will enhance qualifications you already have, or provide a great foundation for a new career.


Some goals of this course are:


  • To discuss theories of ageing and to develop an understanding of the different stages of development.
  • To describe the psychological impact of changes which occur as a result of aging.
  • Describe the nature and scope of support services including grief & loss counselling for the elderly.
  • To describe solutions that can enable an elderly person to successfully adapt to changed circumstances.
  • To develop a strategy for counselling an elderly person diagnosed with a debilitating or terminal illness.
  • To determine when and how to intervene in the life of an elderly person.
