Overview

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.

by Koh completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Thank you for the course. I find the resources provided very useful and I could gain deeper understanding about myself in the process of acquiring the knowledge. This is my first course on CBT. I see great potential in its application in helping the older people become happy and useful individuals.
