2019 Annual Meeting

Aging and Psychopathology

2019 Program CoverThe meeting will address critical issues in psychopathology and aging from various perspectives – from the molecular to the societal level. There will be a focus on Alzheimer’s and other dementing illnesses as well as the outcomes of other types of mental disorders. Psychosocial and physical stressors common in later life (e.g., isolation, bereavement, failing health) increase risk of depression, demoralization, despair, and suicide. There will also be a focus on positive aspects of aging. The program includes prominent experts in various aging-related domains and the intended audience is researchers and clinicians interested in aging as well as students.
