Discussion: therapy with older adults

 Clients who are older have often times been dealing with their mental health disorder their entire lives, whiles other disorders may be brought on through the aging process or the trauma of losing a lifelong partner. Treatment can be challenging for both the client and the therapist. For this Discussion, you will focus on therapeutic approaches for an older adult presented in a case study. 

 Please note that the ICD 10 coding system is what in use to relay a patient’s diagnosis. Also, please make an effort to find the latest best practice peer reviewed guidelines when discussing the care of the patient below which will help you do well in this assignment. Also , please use the section as headings so I do not go looking for the answer to each item below. Please read the directions below for the assignment:

  • Which diagnosis should be considered?
  • What is the DSM-V Coding for the diagnosis you are considering?
