Abstract:

With prevalence rates approaching 10% for anxiety disorders and 6% for major depression, anxiety and depression have a significant impact on adults in later life. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychosocial intervention for anxiety and depression that can serve as a useful alternative or adjunct to pharmacologic intervention for older adults.
