Description - Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Older People by Ken Laidlaw
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is now well established as an
effective treatment for a range of mental health problems, but for
clinicians working with older clients, there are particular issues
that need to be addressed.
Topics covered include the need to build a therapeutic
relationship, dealing with stereotypical thinking about ageing,
setting realistic expectations in the face of deteriorating medical
conditions, maintaining hope when faced with difficult life events
such as the loss of a spouse, disability, etc., and dealing with
the therapist's own fears about ageing.
Illustrated throughout with case studies, practical solutions and
with a troubleshooting section, this is essential reading for all
clinical psychologists, psychiatrists and related health
professionals who work with older people.
* Authors are world authorities on depression and psychotherapy
with older people
* First book to be published on CBT with older people
* Case studies and examples used throughout to illustrate the
method and the problems of older people
