    About the Author

    Professor Ken Laidlaw is Head of the Department of Clinical Psychology and Programme Director of the ClinPsyD Clinical Psychology Training Programme within the Norwich Medical School, at the University of East Anglia. Professor Laidlaw is also currently honorary consultant clinical psychologist with Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Trust, having for many years served as Professional Lead of an Older Adult Clinical Psychology Service in Scotland. He maintains active and ongoing research activity in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for late life depression and anxiety, especially with complex, chronic and comorbid conditions. From 2000 to 2001 he was invited to spend a year at the University of Pennsylvania (PENN) in Philadelphia with Aaron T. Beck, the father of CBT, as visiting scholar. He has a long and productive association with Professors Larry W. Thompson and Dolores Gallagher-Thompson at Stanford University, California, USA. He was the Principal Investigator on the first UK RCT of CBT for late life depression. His manual for this trial has subsequently been used in other clinical trials. He also led the development of a cross-cultural Attitudes to Ageing Questionnaire (AAQ), that was piloted and field trialled in 20 countries worldwide. This is now used widely in international trials. His conceptualisation framework for CBT with older people is part of the UK's Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) initiative, and informs the IAPT curriculum materials for HI IAPT workers. He authored the older adults section of the evidence-based guide to the commissioning of psychological therapies for the NHS in Scotland (The Psychology Matrix, NES, 2011).


    I want to acknowledge the great generosity of all my clients in allowing me to learn with them when facing their current life challenges and I am very grateful to those who agreed to have some of their stories shared for training purposes. The clients I worked with always showed great resilience and tenacity in facing problems with a strength of character forged from adversity that always impresses and inspires me, even if they sometimes found it very hard to give themselves much credit for what they did. I hope to have gained some important insights as a result that I can pass on in this text.

    I am also indebted to the editorial team at Sage, Kate and Laura in particular showed me the greatest patience in waiting for this book to be finished. They never seemed to give up on this book, and were always positive and supportive. I am so very grateful they kept their faith in me. I could not have hoped for a better team to work with.

    Finally, I am fortunate to have an amazing support system at home. My wife Mary and our daughter Katherine were very forgiving of the time I took away from family tasks in order to write. I dedicate this book to them in love and gratitude.
