The Psychology of Life: Mental Health for Seniors
Instructor: Dr. Jerry Goodman

This course will examine the factors causing stress and anxiety, and their physical, behavioral, and psychological effects as well as what mental illness is, and how it affects the family. Stress management techniques you can use in your daily life will also be reviewed. Learn about caregiving, bereavement, how to move on, and how to look at who we are related to self concept (Are we winners or losers?). You will learn a lot about yourself in this series.

He has been the Director of Psychology at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, N.Y, a Professor at SUNY New Paltz, and has maintained a private practice.
