Seeing older age as a time of loss and helplessness too often prevents therapists from providing treatments that can be of enormous benefit to older people.

Ken Laidlaw, Larry Thompson, Leah Dick-Siskin and Dolores Gallagher-Thompson draw upon their collective wealth of clinical experience to provide a comprehensive and practical guide to the applications of CBT to older adults.

Special features include:

  • A new CBT model, effectively adapted from Beck's basic CBT model, for use with older adults.

  • Numerous clinical examples of the usefulness of CBT to treat depression, anxiety, caregiver distress and sleep disturbances.

  • Recommendations for treating depression co-morbid with common medical problems including stroke, Parkinson's disease, the dementias and arthritis.

  • Specific recommendations for 'troubleshooting' frequent dilemmas, such as managing suicidality.

  • Appendices containing blank examples of forms used within the text, and recommended self-help books and websites for further consultation.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Older People is essential reading for all clinical psychologists, psychiatrists and related health professionals who work with older people.
