Summary

The understanding and treatment of the problems of ageing is a growing challenge for clinical psychologists and other mental health professionals. This book is directly focused on the training needs of such professionals; it brings together what they essentially need to know about the processes of normal ageing, the range of psychological problems that can arise, and the assessment, treatment and long-term care of ageing patients. The contributors are experts from the UK and USA, and the aim is to present evidence-based knowledge for training and best practice. * Within this relatively concise volume the range of topics is wide * From neuropsychological assessment to psychological therapies * From individual problems to institutional issues, as well as family-based and community care * From normal ageing to dementia, as well as major problems such as depression "...would certainly recommend this book to buy for trainee or qualified clinical psychologists..." - Journal of Dementia Care
