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:

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe at least 2 unique features of intervening with distressed caregivers
  2. Identify 3 CBT-based skills that will help caregivers manage their distress
  3. Identify at least 2 self-care strategies that help caregivers to continue in their role
