Aging and Older Adults’ Psychotherapy

Envelhecimento e Psicoterapia de Idosos

  • Advanced adulthood can bring questions and doubts about the choices and consequences dating from the beginning of life to the present.
  • At an older age, problems can arise regarding loneliness, significant losses, difficult struggles, changes in intimacy and sexuality, health decreases, integration difficulties, physical changes, family dynamics, dependence and hopelessness. Sometimes a frail health condition may go unnoticed, and so older adults may not adhere to adequate intervention. Psychotherapy can provide specialized help in these cases.

How can older adult psychotherapy help?

  • Older adult psychotherapy can contribute to understanding the changing roles, emotional, physical and disability problems, and other challenges inherent to aging, and contribute towards adherence to treatments, understanding differences, defining future projects, and maximizing the well-being and quality of life of older adults. Techniques highlight the present moment as integrated within the biographical cycle of older adults, reinforcing the perspective that this phase of life is a productive and rewarding stage with well-being, and exploring the possible presence of common limitations in this phase.
