Description - Assessing and Treating Late-life Depression by Michele J. Karel

Not only is depression among the elderly treatable but, given its increase in incidence and a rapidly aging population, it is a critical issue for the mental-health and medical communities. The authors review the range of late-life depressive syndromes and the strategies for assessing and treating them, and illustrate the problems and principles with fourteen extended case studies-rare in the geropsychology literature and the core of the book. They also provide a guide to medications, screening tools, innovative models, and supplementary resources, invaluable tools for mental-health professionals and medical practitioners alike.
