Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Depression in an Older Gay Man: A Clinical Case Study
Satterfield, Jason M.; Crabb, Rebecca
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v17 n1 p45-55 Feb 2010
Although strong evidence supports cognitive-behavioral therapy for late-life depression and depression in racial and ethnic minorities, there are no empirical studies on the treatment of depression in older sexual minorities. Three distinct literatures were tapped to create a depression treatment protocol for an older gay male. Interventions were deduced from the late-life depression literature, culturally adapted CBT protocols for racial minorities, and the emerging social and developmental psychological theories for lesbian, gay, and bisexual populations. Specific treatment interventions, processes, and outcomes are described to illustrate how these literatures may be used to provide more culturally appropriate and effective health care for the growing, older sexual minority population. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
