About this title:

Synopsis:

Optimal Well-Being for Senior Adults I is the first in a series of workbooks consisting of reproducible activity handouts written for mental health professionals to provide guidance and content as they work with the changing mental health and aging needs of senior adults. The activities in the workbook are clear, easy-to-follow handouts that cover a wide range of senior adult mental health and life skills issues.

The activities, exercises and, handouts in this workbook are perfect for those working on mental health issues with the older senior adult population in a variety of settings:

  • Health care settings
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Retirement communities
  • Churches
  • Rehabilitation facilities
  • Community continuing education classes
  • University programs for seniors
  • The reproducible handouts can be individualized to meet the specific needs of the participants. Creativity is encouraged by both the leader and participants in an ongoing process to generate satisfying and meaningful sessions. The use of artwork, graphics, and other design elements offers interest and variety to enhance focus and attention to the topic at hand.

    To aid the facilitator, each handout has a Leader s Guide written for the facilitator. The Leader s Guides include the following:

  • Purpose (identify the skill the participant will be learning)
  • Background Information (can be used as a brief introduction for the session)
  • Activity (provides a step-by-step outline for how to lead a session)
  • Variations (describes at least one variation from the outlined activity)
  • Each of the ten chapters has five handouts with three levels of understanding. This format encourages the facilitator to choose which level is most appropriate for the specific individuals to be served to avoid frustration of both the facilitator and group members.

    The workbook is divided into ten topics which include:

  • Topic I Anxiety and Stress
  • Topic II Coping
  • Topic III Emotion Expression
  • Topic IV Grief and Loss
  • Topic V Life Balance
  • Topic VI Reminiscence
  • Topic VII Self-Awareness
  • Topic VIII Social Skills
  • Topic IX Staying Young at Heart
  • Topic X Thinking Skills
