about education and training programs at Benjamin Rose

The Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging (BRIA) Center for Research and Education provides high quality education and training to promote the professional and paraprofessional growth, development, and skills of those who work in the fields of aging and health services. In addition, BRIA offers programs for older adults and family and friend caregivers who assist older relatives with chronic illnesses and disabilities.

Programming is developed and presented using a variety of methods and materials that respond to attendees' individual learning styles, strengths, abilities, and professional interests. Presenters include BRIA staff with distictive skill sets as well as professionals from a variety of fields. These presenters understand the characteristics of adult learners to think critically and to apply information gained. Programs are guided by the "Instruction Design Conceptual Model," which focuses on training and application to improve: job performance of social workers and counselors, functioning of older adults and informal caregivers.
