Dr Chris Williams

Based on the British Medical Association (BMA) highly commended award-winning equivalent book for adults, and updated to address the needs of older adults.

Covering all the key topics that become relevant when an older adult struggles with low mood- disrupted sleep, anxiety and avoidance, loss of confidence, coping with life changes such as retirement, loss of friends and physical illness, the book teaches CBT-based life skills that can make a positive difference.

 

Commentary from an older adult expert:

‘It is now widely recognised that older adults should have access to a range of evidence-based interventions for depression and low mood. Professor Williams and colleagues have been at the forefront of advocating and developing effective tools to achieve this. The resources here provide staff and individuals direct access to expert-written life skills resources that can allow older adults to learn effective strategies they can use to make changes that can quite literally be life changing. Overcoming Depression and Low Mood in Older Adults provides a wide suite of resources that address all the most common areas of need of older adults and their carers. I warmly welcome and highly recommend this excellent set of resources.’
