Our population is aging and working with late life depression is becoming increasingly clinically important. If you work with adults, come and learn, with exclusive access to a presenter experienced in this area.
In this workshop, Professor Areán will discuss and demonstrate evidence-based psychosocial treatments for late life depression.
The workshop will review the literature and the challenges associated with implementing evidence-based practices with the elderly. Professor Areán will then discuss recommendations from an Institute of Medicine report on psychosocial interventions and describe a process for training clinicians and choosing appropriate treatments. These recommendations are informed by cognitive neuroscience research as well as work in child mental health settings. Thus, clinicians will walk away with knowledge applicable to the whole lifespan.
The workshop with provide attendees with ample opportunity for video-tape demonstration, role rehearsal, and case discussion.
