Depression – at the clinical or subsyndromal level – is a commonly reported outcome of unpaid caregiving (e.g., to parents, partners, grandchildren, disabled children, other members of chosen family). This webinar supports providers as they help middle-aged and older adults who experience caregiver burden, including psychoeducation and the clinical tasks of self-compassion, coping with caregiving stressors, problem solving, cognitive reappraisal, planning positive activities with the care recipient, and self-care. This webinar addresses use for psychotherapy and integrated primary care sessions, including recommended strategies that are responsive to the needs of culturally diverse aging clients. 


Learning objectives: 

  • Describe at least two unique features of intervening with distressed caregivers 
  • Identify three CBT-based skills that will help caregivers manage their distress 
  • Identify at least two self-care strategies that help caregivers to continue in their role
