From the Back Cover:

This volume provides an introduction to, and overview of, aging and mental health that will be a useful resource for psychology students taking courses in aging as well as for academics 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 book 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 have also included the most recent information on effective therapeutic techniques for working with older adults. This combination of theory and practice helps readers conceptualize mental illness problems in later life and prompts decisions as to the assessment and treatment of those problems.

About the Author:

Michael A. Smyer is Professor of Psychology at Boston College.
