This chapter aims to provide clinicians with a comprehensive and clinically useful review of the issues in the assessment and treatment of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) with older people. Brief information about the empirical efficacy of CBT is presented, but the main focus is the application of CBT with a consideration of whether CBT needs to be modified to be optimally effective for use with older people. The issue of suitability of older people for cognitive behaviour therapy is also discussed and criteria are considered as a guide for this often-asked question.
