Product Overview

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 therapists 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 *Author: Laidlaw, Ken/ Papageorgiou, Costas/ Dick-Siskin, Leah *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 232 *Publication Date: 2003/06/09 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.48 x 6.68 x 0.56 inches
