This culturally responsive workbook uses the evidence-based methods of cognitive behavioral therapy to help middle-aged and older adults build on existing strengths and reduce symptoms of depression, whether they are feeling “a little blue” or are very depressed. The culmination of more than four decades of research, this empirically supported and effective treatment program helps clients learn how to develop and use healthy habits to improve mood and quality of life. This workbook is intended to be used as an adjunct to clinician-provided CBT and is not a self-help book to be used on its own. The personalized approach used in this workbook means that, together with their clinician, individuals decide which of the modules are a good fit for their specific life circumstances. Each module includes easy to read, large-print Learn
pages that therapists can use to help clients learn specific depression management skills, along with Practice
forms to use between sessions to practice, remember, and use these skills. Complete with information and practical strategies for improving depression and related concerns (e.g., anxiety, sleep, chronic pain, brain health, caregiving, grief and personal relationships), this thoroughly revised second edition of Treating Later-Life Depression: A Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Approach
provides indispensable resources to help culturally diverse aging individuals thrive in a daily life that is true to their values and personal strengths.Less
