Handbook of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies with Older Adults Hardback
Edited by Dolores Gallagher-Thompson, Ann Steffen, Larry W. Thompson
The purpose of this book is to disseminate "best practice" models of treatment for the common mental health problems of late life, so that evidence-based practice will become the norm (rather than the exception) when working clinically with older adults.
Each chapter contains reviews of the empirical literature focusing on studies conducted with elders; then they emphasize how CBT can be applied most effectively to that specific patient population.
Case studies illuminate practice recommendations, and issues of diversity are likewise highlighted whenever possible.
