Description - Schizophrenia in Late Life by Philip D. Harvey

Older adults with schizophrenia have been a largely neglected population, and only since 1990 has any systematic effort been made to study them. Schizophrenia in Late Life helps fill the void in the literature. This volume presents a uniquely comprehensive picture of the current research about this population. With normal aging used as the point of comparison, Harvey explores several issues in the domain of schizophrenia and aging. The central issue is that of age-related changes in the clinical features of schizophrenia, which include delusions, hallucinations, emotional changes, cognitive impairments, and adaptive life skills. The text also examines whether the course of schizophrenia changes over time and considers the implications of pharmacological and behavioral treatments for schizophrenia.
