“Great presentation! Very useful information for practitioners in a variety of settings. Highly recommended. I learned the CBT is NOT just “change your thoughts and change your life.”-Kellie H., Social Worker, Iowa
Across behavioral health professions, there is a workforce shortage of clinicians trained to provide evidence-based mental health services to older adults. Cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations have been effectively used to develop assessments and interventions for older adults and their involved family care partners. This webinar will help you apply your existing knowledge and experience with CBT to the common physical and mental health concerns of middle aged and older adults. You will develop an understanding of typical adjustments to assessment and intervention strategies while working with older adults. CBT assessment and interventions for late life depression will be used as an example, along with empirically supported CBT interventions for family caregivers of older adults. The presentation will also include resources for clinical practice with these populations.
