Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070WEB

This webinar will dispel the all-too-common assumption that psychotherapy and counseling are not effective treatment modalities with senior adults. Contrary to the belief that seniors are "inflexible and stuck in their ways" as well as having diminished cognitive and reflective capacity, studies indicate that they can benefit as much from these modalities as younger persons, albeit with some different approaches, techniques and goals. In this workshop we will consider the special strengths and challenges of senior adults, the place of their particular life cycle issues and how to understand and use transference, resistance, support and interpretation in working with this population. Many case examples and exercises will be offered. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]
