Summary

Relevant and accessible psychological services for aging adults are imperative, yet few mental health professionals are familiar enough with this rapidly growing population to provide quality care.Clinical Geropsychology, written for practicing clinicians, graduate students in training, and other scientifically informed mental health professionals, provides invaluable guidance for individuals working with aging populations.

The book begins with a theoretical anchoring across perspectives on psychological and behavioral aspects of aging such as life-span developmental, cognitive, sociological, and physiological psychology. Practical realities and life challenges are then explored in chapters on sexuality, marriage, elder abuse, dementia, depression, employment, retirement, and several other topics. These chapters provide an experiential sense of problems as well as data on incidence and prevalence. The book ends with nuts-and-bolts advice on psychological assessment, neuropschological assessment, individual therapy, and family therapy with older adults.
