From the Back Cover:

This fully revised and updated second edition provides a complete introduction to aging and mental health for psychology students taking courses in aging as well as for academics and practitioners working in the field of gerontology. It will also be of interest to service providers in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and nursing, and to clinicians who are experienced mental health service providers but who have not had much experience of working with older adults.

The new edition of Aging and Mental Health offers a detailed and comprehensive discussion of the reigning theoretical models of mental health, and their application to later life. These discussions are supplemented by case material that allows the reader to apply theoretical perspectives to the problems and prospects of later life. The authors also include the most recent information on various types of mental disorders and effective therapeutic techniques for working with older adults. This combination of theory and practice helps readers conceptualize mental health disorders and problems in later life and negotiate the complex decisions involved with the assessment and treatment of those problems.
