Description

Cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective and appropriate approach for late-life depression because it is problem focused, examining and treating present-day problems that negatively impact the client's quality of life. Established empirical studies support the use of standard CBT with older clients, and subsequent research has reinforced CBT's effectiveness when tailored to fit the needs of this prominent population.

In this video, Dr. Dolores Gallagher-Thompson works with an older woman with depression, demonstrating the technical assets of CBT while skillfully building an effective therapeutic relationship with the client.
