Overview

Here is a helpful guide for practitioners who work in long-term care settings. A Guide to Psychological Practice in Geriatric Long-Term Care highlights and describes assessment tools and interventions for use with older adults in residential facilities. It is written from a pragmatic view of elder care that fosters the growth of geriatric psychology and views aging dynamically, as a developmental phase with its own challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities. A primer for health professionals in long-term care, this book explains new intervention strategies practitioners can apply to their own residents and helps administrators organize and deliver care in an efficient and substantive manner.

A Guide to Psychological Practice in Geriatric Long-Term Care is divided into two sections. The first presents an integrative model of psychological services as part of geriatric care. It discusses conceptual issues and provides practical advice on how geriatric psychology and other geriatric disciplines can blend into a diversified and rich clinical environment for the caring of older adults. The second part focuses on important and often ignored clinical issues in long-term care such as alcohol abuse, sexuality, psychotherapeutic intervention, and caregiver issues. It urges psychologists to use their theoretical backgrounds and clinical training to explore new foci of care. In both sections, pertinent literature is reviewed and case vignettes illustrate ideas and concepts.

Other topics discussed in this book include neuropsychology, effective use of paraprofessionals, the use and training of interdisciplinary teams, behavioral medicine, family caregiving, and integrated treatment planning. Intrinsically a multidisciplinary book, A Guide to Psychological Practice in Geriatric Long-Term Care is an ideal resource for psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, nursing home administrators, and students in these fields who are interested in providing effective care for older adults. The author invites these professionals to see how psychology can enrich their respective clinical practices.
