Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry presents the essence of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry, Third Edition, covering not only a wide range of mental diseases of the elderly but also the so-called normal age changes that result in biological, social, and behavioral changes in older adults.

The book's coverage begins with demography and epidemiology of late-life disorders and physiological considerations of patient care, then continues with all of the parent text's chapters on diagnostic interviews. Subsequent chapters address ten of the most prominent psychiatric disorders of the elderly and include recent insights into, for example, such matters as differential diagnostic problems in distinguishing dementia from delirium or depression, an in-depth review of late-life bereavement, and nonpharmacological approaches to helping families deal with agitation in older relatives. Each chapter ends with multiple-choice questions for self-assessment. Concluding with four chapters devoted to treatmentincluding psychopharmacology and psychotherapy Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry is an important source of information for psychiatrists and other health professionals committed to the care of older adults.

From the Back Cover

"The authors of Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry have created much of the current knowledge base of our field. Their book is a carefully crafted distillate of their views and instructs with unusual clarity how to approach the clinical, biological, and psychosocial complexity of our patients' problems. I expect it to be a unique guide for clinicians and an important intellectual resource for investigators."--George S. Alexopoulos, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Weil-Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, White Plains, New York

"This is an extraordinarily comprehensive text for all students of geriatric psychiatry. Topics are relevant and the information is cutting edge and well presented. Contributors are leaders in the fields of medicine, psychiatry and psychology. This book will become the standard text for researchers, teachers, and clinicians with an interest in geriatric psychiatry."--Anand Kumar, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, Los Angeles; Past President, American Association of Geriatric Psychiatry
