Psychotherapeutic Techniques with Older Adults – Part 2: Mental Health Services with Older Adults with Cognitive Impairment

February 16, 2022

Presented by Janet Yang, PhD, ABPP

This training will outline different types of cognitive impairment often found among older adults. Given a common understanding that mental health services for persons with “dementia” or cognitive impairment cannot be billed for, the presenter will describe Medi-Cal regulations regarding insurance billing for mental health services for persons with cognitive impairment who also have a co-occurring mental illness. This presentation will describe common emotional and other internal experiences of persons with cognitive impairment. There will be a discussion of psychotherapeutic and other mental health interventions that have demonstrated effectiveness in helping older adults, including adjustments that can be made to interventions during a global pandemic.
