Going beyond simple procedural modifications, this is the first book to address how the application of gerontology to CBT practice can augment CBT’s effectiveness and appropriateness with older people. Taking you step-by-step through the CBT process and supported by clinical case examples, therapeutic dialogue, points for reflection and hints and tips, the book examines: - basic theoretical models in CBT and how to relate them to work with older people - main behavioural interventions and their practical application - social context and relevant theories of aging - implications of assessment, diagnosis and treatment - issues of anxiety, worry and depression, and more specialist applications of CBT for chronic illnesses - latest developments, thinking and empirical evidence. This is an invaluable companion for any clinical psychology, counselling, CBT/IAPT, and social care trainee or professional new to working with older people, especially those who are keen to understand how the application of CBT may be different. Professor Ken Laidlaw is Head of the Department of Clinical Psychology, University of East Anglia.

The development of 'ageless' mental health services means that an increasing number of clinicians are now required to work with older people. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is recognised by all recent meta-analyses as the most effective therapy, yet few clinicians are trained specifically in its usage with the elderly. This book is a detailed guide to using CBT with older people both with and without cognitive difficulties. Reviewing its use in different settings, it covers both conceptual and practical perspectives, and details everything from causes and initial assessment to case formulation and change techniques. Case studies in both depression and dementia are used to illustrate how CBT should work and how positive effects can manifest themselves. Suitable both for trainees and experienced therapists, this book will be essential for anybody using cognitive behavioural therapy in their work with older people, regardless of their clients' levels of cognitive ability.

Discussion: Preliminary data suggest that this burgeoning approach can produce efficacious outcomes for older people with comorbid emotional disorders, and it is both feasible and acceptable to apply tCBT interventions to older people. tCBT has the potential to address some of the shortcomings of disorder-specific CBT, through offering a more clinically and time-efficient approach to comorbidity and enabling much-needed improvements to the dissemination of and access to evidence-based psychological therapies for older people.
