9780415582902: Ageing and Older Adult Mental Health: Issues and Implications for Practice

This book examines the issues and implications that mental health professionals face when dealing with ageing and older adults. The book focuses on the biological, psychological and cultural influences that impact on the work of mental health practitioners who work with this client group.

Based on current empirical research and evidence-based practical issues this book explores topics including:

  • ageing and dementia
  • elder abuse
  • caring for older adults
  • depression and ageing
  • the paradox of ageing
  • how older adults are key to the success of future generations.

Throughout the book the contributors emphasise the notion of ‘healthy ageing,' and the importance and significance of this concept as part of the life-cycle process. As such Ageing and Older Adult Mental Health will be key reading not only for mental health professionals, but also for those involved in policy making for older adults.

About the Author:

Patrick Ryan is a Senior Lecturer and Director of the Doctoral Programme in Clinical Psychology at the University of Limerick, Ireland. He has been involved in the training of clinical psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors for ten years with a particular interest in the area of lifespan development and its contribution to understanding family relations.

Barry J. Coughlan is Senior Lecturer and Assistant Director of Clinical Psychology at the University of Limerick, and Senior Clinical Psychologist with the Brothers of Charity Services, Limerick, Ireland. His clinical/research focus includes mental health and emotional well-being in intellectual disability, ageing and disability. He holds an international publications profile and is in regular demand for international workshops and symposia in his field.

Review:

"Ryan and Coughlan are to be congratulated for editing a highly accessible book on ageing and mental health. This volume should be required reading on all postgraduate courses for mental health professionals who are being trained to provide services to older adults with psychological problems." - Alan Carr, University College Dublin, Ireland

"This is a scholarly book that should be read by all in the caring professions, especially those working with older people. It explodes myths and encourages new perceptions of our ageing population and new insight into how they are valued and cared for. It is sobering to read that their unmet needs have changed little in the past 20 years." - Jenny Bloomer, Therapy Today, February 2012

"Ageing and Older Adult Mental Health: Issues and Implications for Practice should be consulted frequently by students, educators, and practitioners of gerontological care. The content in the book focuses on biological, psychological, and cultural concepts concerning ageing and is particularly key to the work of mental health professionals. As one reads the book, its informative benefits to all geriatric health care providers, not just mental health professionals, becomes obvious. In fact, although it is a scholarly book with much reference to empirical evidence, any educated individual who wants to become more informed on all practical aspects of ageing can gain much insight from picking out chapters to read in this book."-Shelley C. Moore, Activities, Adaptation & Aging, 38:248–258, 2014
