Abstract

Given the changing demographics of the aging population in the United States, it is likely that professional psychologists will encounter elderly clients from diverse backgrounds in their practice. Asians and Latinos represent the 2 fastest growing groups of elderly immigrants. This article offers information and practical suggestions to assist clinicians working with elderly Asian and Latino immigrant clients. Specific recommendations for enhancing assessment and treatment efficacy with these populations are also provided.
