Older adults are one of the fastest growing groups of Americans. The Older Adults Specialization in Pacific Oaks' Human Development course offerings will be the first of its kind in the country combining Ecological Systems Theory with Cultured Centered pedagogical paradigms to train professionals to serve this growing diverse population through a strength-based lens. This curriculum reflects unmet needs of this psychographic who are more ethnically, socio-economically, and academically diverse than previous generations.
