Social Work Practice With Older Adults: A Video Archive

Partner(s): Denise Burnette, Ann McCann-Oakley - School of Social Work

CCNMTL and the School of Social Work produced a series of videos depicting social worker/client interviews on four topics in social work practice with older adults and their families. The topics include: coping with chronic illness, active aging, depression, and sexuality in aging. Ten client and social worker interactions were captured on video, creating more than four hours of interviews. The video on depression was conducted in Spanish and was distributed in both Spanish and English. The videos and teaching materials are being used in courses at the School of Social Work, and have been distributed on CD-ROM to social work libraries across the country. This project was supported by The New York Academy of Medicine and The John A. Hartford Foundation of NYC.
