Specific client groups often require specific procedural changes to ensure that the CBT model is applied optimally to facilitate improvement in the client’s level of adjustment and quality of life. This is particularly the case for older individuals, who often undergo numerous social, psychological, and physical health changes that are less evident in quantity and quality in other client groups seeking therapy. This chapter addresses age-related issues that the therapist should keep in mind when using CBT with older clients.
