Description

In Depression With Older Adults, Dr. Peter A. Lichtenberg demonstrates his multimodal approach to treating this common presenting problem in older clients. There are many possible contributing factors to depression in this population, as issues of grief, loss, and physical decline are unavoidable aspects of later life.

In this session, Dr. Lichtenberg works with a 78-year-old woman whose husband is ill, but is controlling. Because many of her friends have died or live elsewhere, the client has no support network to help with the stressors she faces. Dr. Lichtenberg works with her to help to define her problems and focus on what she can change.
