9781585624133: Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry

With the proportion of older adults in the United States expected to increase dramatically over the next 50 years, the number of elderly patients with psychiatric disorders will also be on the rise. It is therefore more important than ever that clinicians who provide psychiatric care to the elderly have the practical skills and knowledge base required for dealing with the disorders that appear in late life. Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry, Second Edition, distills the main concepts from The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry, Fourth Edition, thoroughly covering not only a wide range of important mental disorders in the elderly but also the so-called normal effects of aging that result in biological, social, and behavioral changes in older adults. Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry is organized into sections devoted to the basic science underlying geriatric psychiatry and to the evaluation, presentation, and treatment of psychiatric disorders occurring in later life. Each chapter closes with a Key Points summary to reinforce the core issues addressed within the text. This handy reference is highly recommended for clinical psychiatrists, residents, psychologists, nurses, researchers, and other professionals providing care to elderly patients.

Descrizione libro American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry, Second Edition, distills the main concepts from The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry, Fourth Edition, thoroughly covering not only a wide range of important mental disorders of the elderly but also the so-called normal biological, social, and behavioral effects of aging. Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry is organized into sections devoted to the basic science underlying geriatric psychiatry and to the evaluation, presentation, and treatment of the most common psychiatric disorders in the elderly -- from mood disorders and anxiety to schizophrenia and circadian rhythm disorders. Among the additional topics considered are  Neuropsychological assessment and its role in the diagnosis of dementia and in differentiating among various cognitive disorders. Specific dementia syndromes -- Alzheimer s dementia, vascular dementia, dementias due to Lewy body disease, and dementia due to frontotemporal degeneration -- and their treatment. Approaches to assessment, diagnosis, prevention, and management of delirium, with emphasis on nonpharmacological interventions as the first line of treatment. New findings on bipolar disorder with onset in late life, including treatment guidelines based on case reports. An in-depth review of late-life bereavement, reflecting a wealth of recent research regarding intense and/or complicated grief. The physical consequences of alcoholism in later life, including interactions between alcohol use and chronic or periodic illness in elderly patients. Chapter summaries are delivered in concise Key Point fashion, and the book s wide array of helpful tables and charts present complex information in an easy-to-absorb form. The Second Edition of Essentials of Geriatric Psychiatry is a must-have reference for geriatric psychiatrists and psychologists and other practicing clinicians, residents in training, psychiatric nurses, social workers, and researchers.
