Flexible and Personalized CBT for Depression in Middle-Aged and Older Adults
August 25, 2022 | 1:00 to 4:00 pm Central | Live On-line
One of the greatest challenges for clinicians working with culturally diverse middle-aged and older adults is the wide variability of life circumstances that accompany depressive symptoms. This webinar presents culturally responsive assessment and intervention practices that target the contexts and drivers/antecedents of depression in middle-aged and older adults. Clinicians learn to plan and implement research-supported strategies that fit the contexts of depression in their clients (i.e., changes in brain health, chronic pain, sleep problems, anxiety, experiences of loss, family caregiving issues, among others). Personalized application of change strategies are highlighted, including attention to personal strengths and positive emotional experiences, self-compassion, cognitive reappraisal, behavioral activation, and problem-solving therapy, among others. Case examples are used to support the efforts of practitioners from a range of disciplines (e.g., social work, counseling, marriage and family therapy, nursing, clinical psychology) in busy clinical practices.
