An ecological, systems perspective is utilized to understand the physical, spiritual, social and psychological aspects of aging in diverse populations. The implications of aging for the family unit, as well as the political, legal and economic systems are explored. Emphasis is placed upon ethical practice, as students prepare to provide direct services to aging individuals and their families, to recognize service needs and gaps, and to become advocates for improvements in policy and services.
