Research Presentation: "Caregiving in Oaxaca: Social Perspectives on Aging and Dementia"

Jonathan Yahalom, clinical psychologist and CSRC visiting scholar for 2017-18, will share findings from his extensive study of rural family caregiving for elders living with dementia in Oaxaca, Mexico. Drawing on research conducted in the Zapotec language, this presentation advances theoretical issues pertaining to cultural competence in the clinical sciences. Further, it develops anthropological insights about how aging, dementia, and caregiving are a prism for macro-level social changes in Oaxaca.
