Psychotherapy of the Elderly — A Special Challenge für Therapists?

Volume 18, 2021, Nr. 2

Meinolf Peters:

Psychotherapy of the Elderly — A Special Challenge für Therapists? (Abstract)

One reason why older people make little use of psychotherapy can be seen in the therapist’s own bias towards treating them. At closer look it can be shown, that negative attitudes towards the elderly have not disappeared, but seem to give way to a more differentiated attitude, where ambivalence still prevails. Reasons for this seemingly unsolvable ambivalence are discussed and ways suggested how special training may improve the situation.
