About this book

Over the last two decades, the number of persons over 65 has increased by 65%. Handbook of Clinical Geropsychology focuses attention on how the contributions of clinical psychology address the problems faced by this enormous population. In the first part, chapters cover a historical perspective, clinical geropsychology and U.S. federal policy, psychodynamic issues, and other key topics. Part II details assessment and treatment for a wide range of disorders affecting the elderly. Part III considers such special issues as family caregiving, minority issues, physical activity, and elder abuse and neglect.
