Psychotherapy with Older Adults / Edition 2

Incorporating some new scientific findings and revising his model in some respects, Knight (U. of Southern California) presents a new edition of his text on the psychotherapeutic treatment of older adults. His model focuses on issues of chronic illness and frequent grieving in a social context and stresses a process of increasing maturity throughout adulthood. It also relies on the recognition of "cohort differences," meaning stable and lasting differences in abilities, beliefs, attitudes, and personality dimensions distinguishing birth-year-defined groups.
