The Clinic provides training programs for practitioners working with older adults.

Seminar Series on Ageing

Swinburne’s Seminar Series on Ageing has been running for more than five years and is the only one of its kind in Australia.

The series attracts presenters who are experts in geropsychology and covers issues relating to late life conditions and treatments. Topics include cognitive impairment, pain and grief, techniques to be applied with older adults such as reminiscence therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and life stage issues such as emotional issues in relocating to residential care.

The seminars are suitable for clinicians and trainee clinicians but can be understood by a broader range of people including consumers, families and carers. The Seminar Series is free and open to the public.
