Overview

Geriatrics and geriatric psychiatry are at a historic turning point. Major growth in clinical interest and research activity has sparked new discoveries in the field. No longer are senility and depression viewed solely as a fate in growing old, an unavoidable concomitant of aging. Comprehensive Review of Geriatric Psychiatry—II was developed in response to the major advances in the field.

As in the first edition, eminent contributors offer their collective expertise on emerging issues in the psychiatry of aging, providing mental health practitioners with a focused but comprehensive review of the field. Much of the first edition has been rewritten, revised, or updated, and new chapters have been added to reflect recent advances in theory and practice.

Targeted to all mental health professionals involved in the care of elderly people, this exceptional work covers the aging process, evaluation and diagnosis, and the major psychiatric disorders typically encountered by psychiatrists who treat aging patients. Newly written material is presented on topics such as genetics, normal aging, ethnocultural and sociodemographic aspects of aging, self and experience across the second half of life, Alzheimer's disease, grief and bereavement, and geriatric consultation-liaison psychiatry. Updated information on medical-legal and ethical issues is provided. Clinicians and residents alike will find the self-assessment section, a significant part of which is new, extremely beneficial.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The second edition of this now-standard book on geriatric psychiatry is edited by internationally recognized clinicians-researchers, with contributions by well-known experts in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a focused but comprehensive review of the psychiatric care of the elderly for the mental health professional. The impetus for the second edition "was stimulated by the continuing growth of knowledge in geriatric psychiatry." The book has been successfully revised and updated; one third of the book was completely rewritten, and the questions in the self-assessment section are new.
Audience: The intended audience is psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, geriatric residents, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health workers.
Features: The book covers all the essential areas of geriatric psychiatry, such as the aging process; evaluation and diagnosis; psychiatric disorders of the elderly; treatment; medical, legal, ethical, and financial issues; and a very useful self-assessment section. Each chapter is followed by an up-to-date reference section.
Assessment: This is an exceptional book covering the critical aspects of geriatric psychiatry. It will continue to be a standard in the field.

Thirty-eight contributions arranged in eight sections discuss the aging process, evaluation and diagnosis, psychiatric disorders of the elderly, treatment, and medical-legal, ethical, and financial issues. Among the topics: normal aging--changes in sensory/perceptual and cognitive abilities; sociodemographic aspects; ethnocultural aspects; neuropsychological testing; dementias and mental disorders due to general medical conditions; grief and bereavement; psychiatric aspects of nursing home care. Self assessment questions (and answers) allow readers to test their understanding of the material. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
