Description

Older adults are the fastest growing segment of our population. Late-life is a complicated time full of adjustment and transition. Older adults struggling to ride a wave of change are increasingly likely to show up in offices like yours with anxiety, trauma, depression, substance abuse and other mental health issues.

But you worry that assessing and treating people over age 65 is just for specialists. That without lengthy and expensive training you’ll be unable to successfully meet the unique challenges of working with this population.

This recording will transform your practice with older adults from one of hesitance and self-doubt to one of prepared confidence. Get the skills and tools you need to effectively assess and treat older clients for anxiety, trauma, depression, suicidal ideation, and substance use issues. From differentiating the signs of dementia from depression to overcoming generational sigma and shame surrounding mental health conditions, you’ll walk away with a roadmap for combining proven interventions from CBT, Mindfulness, and Behavioral Activation with practical considerations for effectively working with older adults.

Can you afford to be unprepared to serve this rapidly growing population?

Purchase today and ensure that you’re poised and ready to provide the best care possible when older clients walk through your door!
