Abstract

Psychotherapy, including a cognitive-behavioral therapy is a recognized method in standard treatment of affective disorders. But its incorporation to the geriatric patients treatment schemas is still, for many specialists, an open question. For many reason, such as cognitive disfunctions or sensory deteriorations, a cognitive-behavioral therapy is often considered inacceptable for this age group and thus it is excluded from treatment algorhytms.
In this paper current knowledge, concerning cognitive-behavioral therapy in elderly depressive patients, is presented.
