Description - Psychotherapy with Older Adults by Bob G. Knight

A practical guide for experienced therapists and students in clinical training, Psychotherapy With Older Adults is a blend of current gerontological theory, research and clinical experience with the elderly. Major themes include: the individuality of older adults; the need to focus on specific disorders rather than perceiving age as the problem; and a spirit of therapeutic optimism regarding the potential for growth and change in later life.
