`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.'
