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 guidance for individuals working with aging populations
  • Part I presents a theoretical anchoring across perspectives on psychological, cognitive, and biological aspects of aging. Part II provides brief introductions to an array of practical issues and life challenges in the lives of aging individuals. Part III provides practical advice on clinical assessment and intervention approaches to assisting older individuals and their families. This last section provides the reader with an introduction to various psychological interventions, clinical issues that typically arise and how best to address them, and topics that the therapist should consider in the clinical treatment of older adults.
