Bonnie Kenaley, associate professor in the School of Social Work, along with Zvi Gellis, associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania, recently published a comprehensive literature review and bibliography titled Depressive Disorders in Older Adults. The review was published in Gero-Ed Center’s “Mental Health Resource Review”
The literature review gives an overview of aging population and discusses prevalence and characteristics of depression in older adults, risk and protective factors for late-life depression, comorbidity of depression in older adults, depression screening, evidence based treatment, and cost of depression. The review is one of nearly 350 resources for faculty to use in their course on aging.
The Gero-Ed Center is part of the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) and provides new and updated teaching resources for faculty for social work students.
