Designed for the clinician, "The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry, Second Edition", provides a thorough grounding in the basic scientific knowledge and applied clinical skills that are so needed in managing and treating mental disorders of late life.This volume covers not only the wide range of mental diseases of late life but also the biological and behavioral changes that occur with so-called normal aging. The contributors - an eclectic group of highly respected investigators, clinicians, and scholars from the fields of psychiatry, biomedicine, and behavioral science - were chosen for their demonstrated ability to present complex material in a manner that is understandable to health professionals and other interested and well-informed individuals.
