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.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe at least 2 unique features of intervening with distressed caregivers
- Identify 3 CBT-based skills that will help caregivers manage their distress
- Identify at least 2 self-care strategies that help caregivers to continue in their role
