Broaching the Subject: Psychotherapy for Older Adults


Many of us project an image onto the elderly that’s not universally true. The image says that older people can’t or won’t change their behaviors, even if those behaviors are no longer functional. Resistant to change and embedded in the past is how we think of many older clients. With a sigh we might halfheartedly suggest slight changes in behavior, but when that fails, we give up and attribute the failure to the person being “set in their ways”.
Our approach to therapy with seniors may be partially at fault.
