The development of 'ageless' mental health services means that an
increasing number of clinicians are now required to work with older
people. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is recognised by all recent
meta-analyses as the most effective therapy, yet few clinicians are
trained specifically in its usage with the elderly. This book is a
detailed guide to using CBT with older people both with and without
cognitive difficulties. Reviewing its use in different settings, it
covers both conceptual and practical perspectives, and details
everything from causes and initial assessment to case formulation
and change techniques. Case studies in both depression and dementia
are used to illustrate how CBT should work and how positive effects
can manifest themselves. Suitable both for trainees and experienced
therapists, this book will be essential for anybody using cognitive
behavioural therapy in their work with older people, regardless of
their clients' levels of cognitive ability.
