About the Authors
  • Until recently, medical literature has sadly neglected the commonest psychiatric disorders of old age. This volume neatly remedies that situation by providing a comprehensive reference and thorough practical guide to all the psychiatric disorders of the elderly not known to be caused by organic disease. Weaving together psychiatry and somatic medicine, the volume covers neuroses, affective disorders, substance abuse, psychosexual disorders, schizophrenia, epidemiology and treatment methods. Along with case histories that bring much of the detail into lively focus, the chapters are fully cross-referenced and are rich in practical advice on multidisciplinary management strategies. This first exhaustive text on the psychiatry of old age will be of great interest to all professionals concerned with the health of older people, including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, nurses, doctors of geriatrics and health care administrators.

    • The only comprehensive reference and practical guide
    • International and multidisciplinary contibutors
    • Illustrated with case histories and with chapter cross-referencing

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...much of the text details syndromes and issues that are common to adult psychiatry and the reviews are largely descriptive. Where there are opportunities to expand upon elderly-specific data, these are well taken. The chapters on late-onset schizophrenia, pseudo-dementia, and affective disorders after stroke are especially good." Paul Harrison, Lancet, North American Edition

    "...an interesting, practical and comprehensive new book covering the nondementing mental disorders of the elderly...an excellent, useful, and highly relevant new book written by internationally known contributors covering an often neglected area of functional psychiatric disorders in the elderly. This book definitely fills this void." Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

    "...a nicely organized summary of our present fund of knowledge in geriatric issues in psychiatry. It truly meets its goal of providing information 'for practitioners from all clinical disciplines related to geriatric psychiatry.' Its scholarly topic review is useful for the researcher, and the wealth of pertinent clinical information is of equal value to the general clinician." Susan K. Schultz, American Journal of Psychiatry

    "...enjoyable, stimulating, and easy to read....a valuable resource for clinicians and researchers." M. Dennis, Age and Ageing

    "I view this as an excellent textbook for new entries into the field of geriatric psychiatry. I would also recommend it to other mental health professionals who work with the elderly and to experienced geriatricians who have been looking for a comprehensive guide to functional psychiatric disorders in the elderly." Allen Raskin, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
