Evidence Based Psychotherapies for Late Life Depression

Late life depression is a term used to describe depression occurring in people older than 65 years of age who have not had a previous history of mood disorder. Late life occurs in approximately 1% to 2% of all community-dwelling elders. In acute care hospitals its prevalence rises to approximately 10% to 12%. Among all nursing home residents, 12% to 14% meet the criteria for a major depressive episode (MDD). Depressive symptoms are much more prevalent in late life with prevalence rates between 30% and 45%.

Including Orthodox Jews in the Argument for Multicultural Sensitivity in Psychotherapy

Mental health help-seeking by ethnic minorities and sensitivity to their needs has been identified as a priority. Most frequently, scholars such as Derald Sue identify people of color as the focus of micro aggressions and more generally, of bias and insensitivity. Yet, other minority groups are also part of the multicultural equation when considering mental health help-seeking and practice. Insensitivity to the needs of Orthodox Jews is an important omission.
