Beschreibung

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.

  • Offers a comprehensive review of models of mental health and mental illness, along with their implications for treatment of older adults
  • Provides a pragmatic analysis of assessment and treatment approaches that both students and practitioners will find useful
  • Uses case studies to link theory and practice
  • Fully updated to include discussion of the development and implementation of evidence-based treatment protocols in the field of mental health; the increasing prevalence of cognitive impairment and an appreciation of its implications for a variety of functional behaviors; and a changing understanding of long-term care away from a focus on institutional care and toward a broader spectrum of services

Sara Honn Qualls is Kraemer Professor of Aging Studies, Professor of Psychology, and Director of the Gerontology Center at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
