  1. Psychotherapy with older adults in primary care medical settings.

    Article - En anglais

    Whereas many older adults are hesitant to seek psychotherapy in traditional mental health settings, primary care medical settings offer many advantages in reaching underserved elderly clients with a variety of mental disorders.

    The present article reviews the growing importance of primary care in our health care system and as a setting to reach clients in need of psychotherapy ; important issues for psychotherapists interested in practicing in primary care medical settings ; and special issues in treating older adults in primary care.

    Case studies illustrate varied approaches to psychotherapy with older-adults and their families in primary care, with such problems as depression, alcohol abuse, and dementia.

    Adaptations to conventional psychotherapy necessitated by the primary care setting are highlighted.
