Presented by the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance and co-sponsored by The Institute for Family Health, this training will teach participants how to use Behavioral Activation (BA), which is a short-term intervention that has been shown to reduce depression in older adults.
Behavioral Activation was specifically designed so that anyone can use it, from new caregivers to experienced clinicians. BA reduces depression symptoms by helping people engage in pleasant social, recreational and physical activities. This training will explore Behavioral Activation’s theoretical background and evidence base; explain how to provide psychoeducation to clients and engage them in treatment; and provide tools to guide implementation of this evidence-based approach to treatment.
