About this item

Written by a renowned scholar and practitioner of gerontology and aging, this is a concise, reader-friendly overview of key concepts of geropsychology, the psychology of aging. Grounded in positive psychology, the text dispels common myths about the aging population with a wealth of evidence-based research. It encompasses a foundational knowledge base regarding issues unique to older adults, information that is essential for mental health providers, who already see an unprecedented growth in the number of older adults in their practices--a trend that is expected to continue for years to come. The text discusses theoretical models underlying geropsychology, and examines common difficulties that affect older adults along with the most effective treatment approaches for this population.
