To meet the explosion of interest in this area, eminent researchers present the first introductory textbook on the psychological needs of older adults. The text is divided into two parts with the first exploring topics of general interest. Discussions include social adaptation, assessment, clinical neuropsychology, medical assessment, and competence of older adults. The second part describes treatment of specific disorders-including late-life depresssion, Alzheimer's disease, and marital discord among others.

Editorial Reviews

`An excellent initial textbook for training graduate students in geriatric mental health. Furthermore, the authors have successfully provided an excellent quick reference handbook for those individuals who are more senior in the field.' Clinical Gerontologist `Certainly fulfills the need for a graduate-level textbook on geropsychology....For those interested in gaining geropsychological exposure or developing proficiency in this field, Psychological Treatment of Older Adults provides a good didactic foundation.' Contemporary Psychology, 42(12) 1997
