9780123749376: Evidence-Based Counseling and Psychotherapy for an Aging Population (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

At a time when the mental health difficulties of the elderly are coming to the fore,  naming and treating those problems is still toften handled as an art rather than a science. Inconsistent practices based on clinical experience and intuition rather than hard scientific evidence have been the basis on which older adults with social and emotional problems are treated. Evidence-based practices help to alleviate some of the confusion, allowing the practitioner to develop quality practice guidelines that can be applied to the client, identify appropriate literature that can be shared with the client, communicate with other professionals from a knowledge-guided frame of reference, and continue a process of self-learning that results in the best possible treatment for clients.

The book provides practitioners with a state-of-the-art compilation of evidence-based practices in the assessment and treatment of elderly clients. Focusing on the most current research and best evidence regarding assessment, diagnosis, and treatment, the volume covers difficulties including, but not limited to: social isolation/loneliness, elder abuse/neglect, depression and suicidal inclinations, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, dementias, prolonged bereavement, and the psycho-social treatment of older adults with terminal illnesses.

Because concrete research evidence is so often not used as the basis for practice, this book provides a timely guide for mental helath clinicians, social workers, psychologists, counselors, nurses and students to a research-oriented approach to serving the mental health needs of elderly adults.

From the Back Cover:

Evidence-Based Counseling and Psychotherapy for an Aging Population discusses the primary issues facing older adults and the psycho-social therapies that are most effective in helping older adults cope with depression, anxiety, love and intimacy, work, retirement, loneliness and isolation, substance abuse, and health-related problems including Alzheimer's disease, dementia, terminal illness, and bereavement. The book is the third in a series of books by the author on evidence-based practice and includes the latest research with case studies showing how evidence-based practice can be applied to older adult clients. The book also includes personal stories from older adults that describe their unique ways of overcoming serious social and emotional problems to achieve successful aging.  

  • In-depth discussions of evidence-based practice and how it can be applied to older adults-a rapidly growing population that is underserved by human service professionals 
  • An easy-to-read writing style that summarizes hundreds of pieces of relevant research for the busy clinician, researcher, and student 
  • Personal stories and interesting case studies that show how older adults overcome serious problems including loss of loved ones, traumas, health problems, relationship difficulties, and a number of common problems that affect older adults 
  • Current research on the most effective psycho-social therapies for helping older adults cope with a variety of social, emotional and health-related problems
