Abstract

This study reports outcome research on a counseling approach designed to enhance the meaningfulness of life for elders. The approach was developed to provide an age-appropriate and culturally sensitive treatment model for alleviating depression among Cuban-American elders. Complete data were available on a sample of 66 elders. Treatment outcome analysis indicated that significant improvements in functioning occurred along all dimensions evaluated. Additional analyses were performed to identify client and treatment variables that were differentially predictive of treatment success.
