Geriatric Psychotherapy

The value of psychotherapy is often overlooked in older patients though they struggle with many of the same issues as their younger counterparts. In this elective, fellows can take on individual psychotherapy patients or participate in “Senior Wisdom” group therapy. During therapy, patients will explore themes of bereavement, ambiguity, difficult transitions, unresolved trauma and personal issues.

Faculty includes: William Apfeldorf, M.D.; Lawrence Lazarus M.D.; Corbett Schimming, M.D.
