The cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) model of intervention with older adults has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing depressive symptoms and suicidal behavior among the elders (Wampold et al., 2002). The premise of this therapeutic strategy is to identify cognitive distortions and formulate more realistic alternative thoughts, which then lead to changes in behavior.

Reference:
Wampold, B. E., Minami, T., Baskin, T. W., & Tierney, S. C. (2002). A meta-(re) analysis of the effects of cognitive therapy versus ‘other therapies’ for depression. Journal of Affective Disorders, 68(2-3), 159-165.
