This work shows the clinical application of a metacognition method step by step with an accompanying for all therapeutic sessions. The evaluation of the treatment’s efficacy is measured through a specific instrument called: Metacognitive Activity Inventory. Our innovation is the proposal of a clinical intervention. The intersection between systemic thought, aging and metacognition, synthesized in therapeutic action, maybe gives this study exclusiveness
