This chapter supports providers as they use flexible clinical tools for the psychotherapy termination process with middle-aged and older adults. Termination issues covered include the therapy relationship, review of skills learned, planning for future stressful situations, and recognizing signs of relapse. This chapter also describes the Practice forms that clients can use to develop a maintenance guide that supports daily living consistent with personal values and life goals after therapy has ended. Psychotherapy relationships and termination processes are embedded within social contexts and environments. This chapter directs practitioners to apply specific strategies that are responsive to the needs of culturally diverse aging clients, including within the context of telehealth.
