GERON 705 - Sexuality and Aging

Credits: 3

Sexuality is one important component of well-being throughout the life span and growing older doesn’t eliminate the need for sexual intimacy. This course will address the infrequently discussed topic of sexuality as it applies to older adulthood. Students will learn about the physiological changes that accompany aging and affect sexuality, as well as the psychological and social impact of barriers to sexual expression, including factors such as Alzheimer’s disease, accessibility, and medications. Sexual diversity, as well as the role of family, government, and technology will also be addressed.

Recommended prerequisite: Introductory gerontology course.
