Mental Health Consultation in Nursing Homes by Michael A. Smyer

Book Description

"The most complete book to date concerning the institutionalized care of the mentally ill elderly. A compassionate, comprehensive portrayal of the problems of caring for older persons by family members and nursing home staff. Essential reading for all those working with the elderly." --Bertram J. Cohler, Committee on Human Development, University of Chicago "The real strength of this book lies in its initial conceptualization of the nursing home as a community with a community's complexity of forces working both for and counter to the best interests of its members...contrasting the traditional view that the institution is the enemy of its residents." --M. Powell Lawton, Director of Research, Philadelphia Geriatric Center "This eminently readable book meets a long-standing need in the field of mental health, reflected in the fact that many nursing home residents suffer mental and emotional problems not infrequently the cause of their placement. Rooted solidly in theory, research, and clinical evidence, yet with a clear eye to practical applications, this excellent book will appeal to scholars, educators, students, administers, consultants, and practitioners." --Barbara Silverstone, Executive Director, The Lighthouse "This book come out at the right time in our return to a national discussion of the mental health needs of older adults. Scholarly in breadth and thoroughness, the authors draw on their wealth of practical experience to edify topics on the nursing home industry and its community of caregivers, families, and residents, and on strategies for mental health consultation, assessment, and intervention. It is thoughtfully written." --Carrell Wendland, Ph.D., President Beverly Foundation
