With the growing emphasis on active aging, how well are we preparing the workforce, and specifically social workers, with the knowledge, skills and values to promote aging in a healthy manner across the life course? Social work brings a distinctive perspective to understanding how the larger social, economic and political context affects what it means to age well. Key knowledge, skill and value domains for social work practice and policy along with the use of technology to support active aging will be presented. The implications of an active aging paradigm to recruit students to work with older adults and their families will also be discussed. There will be ample opportunity for questions and dialogue.

Nancy Hooyman holds the Hooyman Professorship of Gerontology and is dean emeritus at the University of Washington School of Social Work. She is nationally recognized for her scholarship in aging and multigenerational policy, gender inequities in family caregiving, and feminist gerontology.
