DPT 415: Lifespan II

Course Description This course, the second in the Lifespan series, is designed for first-year students in Physical Therapy. It reflects the perspective of the individual's development within the framework of one's family, community and the world at large that was established in Lifespan I. The emphasis of Lifespan II is the continuum of adult development from adolescence through old age and end-of-life issues. Particular focus is given to the relationship between accomplishing the developmental tasks of adulthood and responding to impairments/functional limitations. Factors associated with healthy lifestyles and wellness will be emphasized as students continue their analysis of “Healthy People 2010" goals and their application in physical therapy practice. 2 credits
