Psychotherapy for Late-Life Depression

Article Abstract

Few data on treating geriatric patients with depression are available. In 2001, a panel of experts reached consensus on preferred treatment strategies for older adults with depression, and guidelines were published to aid clinicians in treating these patients. This activity reviews the recommendations and provides updated evidence on the use of psychotherapy in the treatment of older adults with depression, including the development of a problem-solving therapy designed to increase patient functioning and address symptoms seen in depressed patients with executive dysfunction.
