-Don R. Catherall, Ph.D., Northwestern University Medical School
"The elderly are often isolated by age and social biases, and this lends itself to increased trauma, violence and neglect. Until recent years we have not even had resources and laws/procedures to report elderly abuse, having to rely on the language and format of child abuse while making appropriate adjustments for age and circumstance. Experts in domestic violence cite rapidly growing numbers of victims among the elderly, often in long-term marriages."
-The World Pastoral Care Center
"This is the definitive work on PTSD with the aged. What makes this book so praiseworthy is a combination of clarity, extensiveness, and insight. By insight, I mean that the authors know when to lay out the full range of accepted diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and when to admit the limitations of what is currently accepted. What is especially refreshing here is the discernment and decision making: looking at the patient's personality and situation in order to decide what kind of treatment approach to use.."
-Clinical Gerontologist, Volume 24, No. 4
"This book is both a useful and necessary book in an increasingly ageist society, that ironically refuses to age! -TheIrish Psychologist, Volume 31, No. 1, August 2004
