Abstract

This article describes the development of Biblio and Telephone Therapy, or BTT, a cognitive-behavioral treatment program for late-life anxiety disorders. Although studies have examined bibliotherapy for the treatment of late-life depression, none have studied it as a format for treating late-life anxiety. The application of this treatment to four older adults with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and/or panic disorder (PD) is described, and benefits, advantages, and limitations are discussed.
