About the Book
A health worker confuses an older patient's reversible brain disorder with senility--and labels it hopeless. A counselor sees a seventy-year-old woman's depression as a function of her age--and dismisses her complaints that her children don't respect her. A therapist avoids treating sexual dysfunction in a sixty-five-year-old man, mistakenly believing that treatment can't help.

"Aging and Mental Disorders" should help dispel some of these too-common myths and misconceptions about the elderly. Widely acclaimed and enthusiastically reviewed, it gives professionals the knowledge and insights they need to meet the challenge of working with the aged.
