Recensie(s)

In conclusion, this book is an excellent resource for mental health students and professionals working with aging adults. It addresses a need in the literature for a reliable text to help inform the field of aging and mental health ... Aging and Mental Health is a valuable contribution to the gerontological literature. (The Gerontologist, 8 August 2011) Segal (psychology, U. of Colorado at Colorado Springs) et al. provide a revised and updated edition of their introduction to aging and mental health for psychology students, academics, and practitioners in gerontology, as well as service providers in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and nursing. After an overview of basic gerontology, they consider models of mental health and their application to the aging, and the prevalence, assessment, and treatment of older adults with various mental disorders, with a final chapter on geriatric mental health practice contexts and settings. (Annotation (c)2011 Book News Inc.
