Choose one (NOTE: be sure to check the discussion page first, only 2 people per topic. If there are 3 postings on the topic you may not report on that topic, you must choose a different one…first come, first served) topic, view the information and present the information that you learned in your discussion post.
Do some additional research on your topic and include at least one peer reviewed citation in your response.
The psycho-social aspects of aging are very diverse. Choose one aspect of psycho-social aging, and create and present a 6-10 slide (PowerPoint) presentation about your topic and be sure to include a description of the psycho-social topic, incidence, how it is recognized (assessment), and characteristics of the people that are affected by the issue/topic.
Your presentation should be narrated and can include a short video clip if you wish. Be creative. Be sure to address every question in your presentation and cite professional peer-reviewed articles.
Your topic choice cannot be one of the topics we are covering in the other modules of this course.
It cannot be a topic that another of your classmates has already posted (you can claim a topic by posting the topic in the discussion forum stating that you have chosen this topic). If someone else has already chosen that topic you will need to choose something else to post about.
