Chapter 6 examines specifically the application of Beck’s cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and problem-solving therapy (PST), an adaptation of cognitive-behavioral techniques, with the older adult population. It also uses the Pikes Peak Model to identify the focal areas needed for competent delivery of these treatments with older adults. It also covers the Pikes Peak Model, which outlines six areas to be considered in the competent application of treatment: applying interventions with appropriate modifications, using evidence-based treatments, developing appropriate treatments when there is a lack of evidence available, proficiently employing common late-life intervention, using interventions to enhance the health of diverse elderly persons, and intervening across settings.
