This introductory workshop reviews foundational issues in the provision of psychological services to older adults. Dr. Hinrichsen provides an overview of APA’s Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Older Adults. He discusses assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment.
