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.
The editor Robert Woods and many of these contributors collaborated in the Wiley Handbook of the Clinical Psychology of Ageing, a comprehensive, authoritative and much larger volume which is now a standard reference in most psychology and clinical libraries. This new book is an accessible, focused text for clinical training courses, offering a selection of the key Handbook chapters revised and updated, together with new material by the editor which reviews other important topics and directs the reader to further sources of information in the field.
