The utility of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in the treatment of psychiatric disorders among adults has been clearly established (Hollon, Stewart, & Strunk, 2006). The current volume covers the range of specific mental health issues that can be ameliorated through CBT in older adults. However, extending CBT to the broader issues of adaptation in old age requires new paradigms that encompass pathways to mental health through well-being and the skills needed to derive meaning in later life. This latter point is underscored in a recent review of the role of positive psychology in the future provision of mental health therapy.
