This new edition of Terry's popular text, Working with the Elderly and their Carers, has been updated throughout to include the latest developments in the theory and practice of psychodynamic work with older people. Two new chapters look at difficulties in mourning in the later years and at the particular challenges which therapists in training may encounter in working with this age group. The new edition also includes new case studies and substantial new material on observation and counselling in dementia and on time-limited work with older people.
