The Handbook of Gerontology: Evidence-Based Approaches to Theory, Practice, and Policy provides an essential source of important theoretical and applied information on gerontology for all mental health professionals interested in optimizing the health and well-being of older adults. Interdisciplinary and incorporating the most current evidence-based practices in its focus, this timely book considers the many factors that affect the way this growing population experiences the world-and provides a positive and proactive guide to administering care.

Integrating the latest research findings with important practice implications for working with an older client population, the Handbook of Gerontology draws on a multidisciplinary team of expert contributors who provide coverage and insight into a diverse range of topics, including:

  • A global perspective on aging
  • Elder abuse
  • Family caregiving
  • Parenting grandchildren
  • Depression
  • Substance abuse
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Successful aging and personality
  • Biological and cognitive aspects and theories of aging
