FutureLearn: CBT with Older People

 with  Ken Laidlaw

Enhance your knowledge of CBT and ageing, and how to use CBT with older people

This online course provides an efficient introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with older people.

You’ll first cover the basic theory and practice of CBT, before focussing on how working with older people can be different, because of comorbidity, complexity, chronicity, and continuity and contextual factors.

You’ll also become knowledgeable about normal and healthy ageing - as well as late life depression and anxiety disorders - which may influence your expectations for optimal treatment outcomes when using CBT with older people.

This course is designed for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, allied health professionals, nurses and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) professionals, who come into contact with older people in clinical practice.
