Summary
"A Guide to Psychotherapy and Aging" dispels the common belief that older people respond poorly to psychotherapy. A comprehensive overview of clinical interventions with older adults, backed by research and illustrated with case examples, this volume explores the challenges as well as the rewards of working with the growing elderly population. Experienced clinicians describe how to adapt traditional psychotherapeutic approches ... and apply them to later-life problems. /// The chapters of this edited volume combine theory and research with case examples, emphasizing the practical clinical decisions faced when working with older people in either individual or institutional settings. /// This volume [is intended for] clinicians interested in working with elderly clients and ... for graduate students exploring the growing area of geropsychology. In addition, doctors, nurses, and social workers already working within the aging network will find this [a] sourcebook for their work. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
