Working Therapeutically With Patients With Kidney Disease

Pooja Datta and Stacy A. Ogbeide

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 15% of the United States (US) population (or 1 in 7 adults), yet many psychologists have limited training in the psychological treatment of CKD as well as how CKD impacts other behavioral health issues. Having a foundational understanding of the pathophysiology of CKD can facilitate psychological treatment options between the clinician and patient with CKD. In addition, it is helpful to use a conceptual framework such as the Stages of Change (Transtheoretical Model/TTM) to select the most appropriate, patient-centered intervention. We outline common contextual issues that may occur in patients with CKD and present examples of phrases that can be used with patients hesitant to engage in psychological treatment.
