Adapting Older Adults to Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Vice Versa: The Case of Geoffrey
Keywords:older adult, aging, cohort effects, cognitive changes, cultural differences
Mohlman et al.’s (2008) case history of Geoffrey makes a compelling case for adding training to improve cognitive functioning in older adults to enhance responsiveness to CBT. They also provide by example a demonstration of therapist flexibility in working with older adults. Along with attention to the influence of cohort differences and ethnic differences, the case provides a good model for what changes in working with older clients.
