On average, rural populations are older than populations in other parts of the country. Thus, clinicians face increasing challenges to assess and treat the mental health challenges of the rural elderly and their caregivers. As some older adults deal with issues such as increase frailty, loss of loved ones and friends, memory loss, and loss of independence, those in rural areas are often far from community services that can help them cope with these changes.
Bouncing back from illness or other life challenges gets harder as we age. This live-in-person workshop will focus on the cognitive-behavioral, emotional, and mindfulness evidence-based methods that have been shown to foster resilience. Strategies to overcome reluctance that some older adults may have about seeking mental health treatment and/or employing new approaches to challenges will also be reviewed.
