Introduction

This chapter considers the empirical evidence base for psychotherapy with older adults. The main focus will be on psychotherapy interventions for late-life anxiety and late-life depression. This chapter will mainly consider cognitive-behaviour therapy, interpersonal therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy when discussing psychotherapeutic interventions with older people as these approaches are the most commonly used in the clinical setting. As the aim is to provide an accessible and useable guide to psychotherapeutic interventions with older people, consideration will also be given to practice elements of therapy with these people and in particular whether adaptations are beneficial when working psychologically with them.
