Description : As the population ages, increasing numbers of older people require the attention and services of mental health professionals. Despite their prevalence, however, mental health problems in this population often go undiagnosed and therefore untreated. This textbook offers medical students and professionals the information they need to care for older people with mental disorders. Drs. Donna Cohen and Carl Eisdorfer, two internationally recognized experts in geriatric mental health, provide a comprehensive framework within which students and practitioners alike can address the salient issues of the field. These include the biopsychosocial aging processes, specific pathologies prevalent in later life, social issues common to the elderly, the delivery of care in various settings, and the economic policies affecting services for older people. The authors’ goal is not only to enhance clinical practice but also to urge physicians to develop and coordinate a more holistic care strategy that acknowledges the complex challenges of older patients. To this end, Cohen and Eisdorfer discuss essential principles of optimal care, the latest research findings, evidence- and consensus-based practice standards, resources to help professionals keep abreast of the changing mental health landscape, and ethical dilemmas of clinical practice and research. The signal strength of this book lies in its integrated approach, an approach that emphasizes the philosophy and principles of caring for older people along with clinical practices and issues. From this broader perspective, the authors describe the many factors that influence the lives, health, and well-being of older patients and their caregivers, making this an ideal text for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers.

Description : Geriatrics and geriatric psychiatry are at a historic turning point. Major growth in clinical interest and research activity has sparked new discoveries in the field. No longer are senility and depression viewed solely as a fate in growing old, an unavoidable concomitant of aging. "Comprehensive Review of Geriatric Psychiatry-II" was developed in response to the major advances in the field. As in the first edition, eminent contributors offer their collective expertise on emerging issues in the psychiatry of aging, providing mental health practitioners with a focused but comprehensive review of the field. Much of the first edition has been rewritten, revised, or updated, and new chapters have been added to reflect recent advances in theory and practice. Targeted to all mental health professionals involved in the care of elderly people, this exceptional work covers the aging process, evaluation and diagnosis, and the major psychiatric disorders typically encountered by psychiatrists who treat aging patients. Newly written material is presented on topics such as genetics, normal aging, ethnocultural and sociodemographic aspects of aging, self and experience across the second half of life, Alzheimer's disease, grief and bereavement, and geriatric consultation-liaison psychiatry. Updated information on medical-legal and ethical issues is provided. Clinicians and residents alike will find the self-assessment section, a significant part of which is new, extremely beneficial.

Description : Psychology and Geriatrics demonstrates the value of integrating psychological knowledge and insight with medical training and geriatric care. Leading physician and geropsychologist contributors come together to share their collective wisdom about topics that are as emotionally uncomfortable as they are universally relevant. As the world struggles to respond to unprecedented gains in life expectancy and an explosion of new retirees living with chronic health conditions, this collaboration could not be more timely. This exceptional resource is, itself, evidence that physicians and psychologists can work together to optimize truly patient-centered geriatric care. Here at last is a scientifically rigorous, evidence-based response to the aging mind and body from those most expertly trained. Illustrates why and how psychologists must assume a more integrated role in meeting the health care needs of older patients Confronts emotionally laden topics such as cognitively impaired driving, caregiver burden, end-of-life communication, suicide, and systemic issues such as bias, payment, and the culture of medicine Challenges decades-long barriers to integration, from both physician and psychologist perspectives, suggesting how they can finally be overcome Provides an innovative, practical response to academic medicine's growing emphasis on psychological and behavioral science Demonstrates how health care reform creates a behavioral health niche that clinical psychologists are uniquely qualified to fill

Description : For most of human history, life expectancy was remarkably stable at about 30-40 years. Within the past 150 years, however, medical advances have virtually doubled that number. The worlds elderly population is growing at 2.4% per year, faster than the rest of the population, with disproportionate increases expected to continue as newer and better treatments are found that minimize the disabilities associated with advanced age. Key to improving the health and quality of life of the elderly is understanding and treating the brain diseases and behavioral disorders that become highly prevalent with age. Geriatric neuropsychiatry is an integrative specialty that draws from many diverse fields, including psychiatry, neurology, neuroscience, and geriatrics. It provides expertise on how to distinguish normal age-related changes from those of disease and disordered brain function. Edited by two eminent practitioners and educators, this wide-ranging textbooks 41 chapters are divided into five major sections: ? Introduction to Geriatric NeuropsychiatryIntroduces the field, including the epidemiology of aging and its array of interacting and accumulating disadvantages, the neurobiology of aging, and the neurobiological basis of behavior? Neuropsychiatric Assessment of the ElderlyDescribes how to ensure early, accurate diagnoses, using both the fundamental cognitive skills evaluation and the more in-depth neuropsychological evaluation; age-associated memory impairment (AAMI) and its biological bases; anatomic imaging of age-related changes in brain morphology; and the latest imaging techniques that allow visualization of brain function in vivo? Neuropsychiatric Aspects of Psychiatric Disorders in the ElderlyCovers everything from affective and anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and psychoses that start late in life to sleep disorders, delirium, pain, contemporary personality psychology, mental retardation, and aggression? Neuropsychiatric Aspects of Neurological Disease in the ElderlyFocuses on diseases such as nondegenerative dementing disorders, Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases, hyperkinetic movement disorders, stroke, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury, concluding with medical illnesses and therapies? Principles of Neuropsychiatric Treatment of the ElderlyDiscusses the effect of age in geriatric neuropsychopharmacology, psychopharmacology, ECT, psychosocial therapies, neuropsychiatry in nursing homes, genetic interventions, rehabilitation, ethical issues, and competency and related forensic issues Exhaustively researched and annotated, the American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Geriatric Neuropsychiatry, Second Edition provides a definitive core reference for psychiatry and neurology residents, particularly those pursuing a specialty in geriatrics, and for graduate students in psychology, neuropsychology, and related fields.

Description : Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a landmark title in the field, offering a clear, detailed, and cohesive call by leading experts for coordinated care for patients with concurrent psychiatric and medical conditions. The renowned editors and authors argue that what is slowly occurring, and greatly needed at a faster pace, is nothing less than a sea change in the way that psychiatric care will be delivered. The current, mostly segregated, medical and psychiatric model of care has led to the development of competing medical and psychiatric subcultures that have resulted in a lack of dialog among health providers, administrators, and payers – and thus in less than optimal patient outcomes. To remedy this problem, the book offers a practical, insightful road map to achieving the central tenet of health reform – truly coordinated, patient-centered care where the care experience for the patient, the medical care itself, and the cost outcomes improve as the system changes from fee-for-service to population-based health. An invaluable reference for all clinicians, policy makers, payers, administrators, and others interested in the debate surrounding healthcare systems, Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a major contribution to the literature and a gold standard resource.

Description : The continued rapid expansion of scientific knowledge about aging and the diseases of later life has altered the practice of geriatric psychiatry greatly since the first edition of "Geriatric Psychiatry "was published. Designed for the clinician, "The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry, Second Edition," provides a thorough grounding in the basic scientific knowledge and applied clinical skills that are so needed in managing and treating mental disorders of late life. This volume covers not only the wide range of mental diseases of late life but also the biological and behavioral changes that occur with so-called normal aging. The contributors-an eclectic group of highly respected investigators, clinicians, and scholars from the fields of psychiatry, biomedicine, and behavioral science-were chosen for their demonstrated ability to present complex material in a manner that is understandable to health professionals and other interested and well-informed individuals.

Description : Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Practical Guide for Clinicians was written for psychiatrists in training and in clinical practice, as well as other health care providers who wish to learn an evidence-based and user-friendly approach to prevent commonly encountered, treatable, and potentially deadly illnesses in their patients. The poor health and early mortality of people with serious mental illnesses has been well documented: People who have serious mental illness have increased general medical comorbid conditions, receive minimal preventive medical services, and have a reduced life span of as much as thirty years when compared to the general population. In addition, there is now extensive data showing bidirectional interactions between chronic medical illnesses and mental disorders. Clearly, treating the whole person, instead of the disorder in isolation, is critical to improving outcomes and reducing suffering. The book's logical structure makes it easy to use, with sections devoted to general principles of preventive psychiatry, cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders, endocrine and metabolic disorders, infections disorders, and oncologic disorders. In addition, the volume: Provides evidence-based approaches to care across the prevention spectrum, from primary prevention (how to keep people healthy), to secondary prevention (how to detect early signs of common illnesses), through tertiary prevention (how to prevent disability and adverse outcomes once patients develop medical problems). Informs clinicians about how to more effectively interface with general medical practitioners, and instructs them in providing screening for common medical problems, as well as ensuring that preventive measures, such as vaccinations, are performed. Covers, in a section addressing "special topics," child, adolescent, and geriatric populations, as well as strategies for assessing and managing chronic pain. Concludes with an appendix that features a health questionnaire, Preventive Medicine in Psychiatry (PMAP), for use in screening and follow-up, and a handy summary of age based preventive medicine recommendations, references to which clinicians will return repeatedly. The Affordable Care Act has provided mental health practitioners with new opportunities to develop integrated models of care that better serve patients and populations, furthering the existing trend of treating the whole patient. Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Practical Guide for Clinicians is a critical resource which will prove indispensable to clinicians dedicated to improving the quality of life and longevity for patients who suffer from serious mental illness.

Description : Integrated behavioral health care is a health-care service delivery system in which behavioral health care is coordinated with primary medical care. Unlike older approaches to patient care in which mental health professionals worked separately from medical professionals, integrated care recognizes that many patients present to medical professionals with behavioral problems. For example, diabetics or persons suffering from chronic pain may experience depression. Thus patients often need some combination of both behavioral and medical treatment. Integrated care attempts to overcome the traditional division of care so that a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach is taken to provide more appropriate care for patients. In this comprehensive, step-by-step guide, a team of national experts in integrated behavioral health care discusses the economic, clinical, administrative, and procedural issues involved in designing, implementing, and maintaining a successful integrated care delivery system. Among the specific topics discussed are psychopharmacology; the Biodyne model (focused, intermittent psychotherapy throughout the life cycle); guidelines for the treatment of major depression, panic disorder, substance abuse, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; disease management groups; treatment adherence; patient access to behavioral health care through the primary care provider; and treating special problems related to the elderly and women's health care. This clearly written, well-organized, and thoroughly researched guidebook will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners in psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, psychiatry, and education.

Description : This textbook is comprised of sections and chapters that provide insight into the interface between the psychiatric, medical, and social dimensions of HIV and AIDS. The editors use a biopsychosocial approach to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the psychiatric andpsychodynamic complexities involved with the prevention of transmission of HIV infection and with the care of persons with HIV and AIDS. The data presented are both from clinical experience and from evidence-based medicine. There is probably no other illness in which the connections between mind andbody are so inextricably woven.In the first section, we explore the history of AIDS psychiatry, one that is pervaded with secrecy, stigma, discrimination, fear, and death. We provide an overview of the AIDS pandemic and the tragic results of the burgeoning of new cases despite the enormous available knowledge base for theprevention of HIV transmission. We document the intimate connection of brain and HIV and the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in persons with AIDS and other manifestations of HIV infection. There is no other illness in which the importance of a thorough assessment provides the information forprevention, adherence, and excellence in care. Because of HIV brain involvement, each evaluation needs to include a complete cognitive assessment as well as a full assessment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders. Some cogent examples include cytomegalovirus retinitispresenting as visual hallucinations, cryptococcal meningitis presenting as mania, depression presenting as cognitive impairment, and cognitive impairment presenting as nonadherence to complex antiretroviral treatment.In the third decade of the AIDS pandemic, underserved populations may not have access to medical or psychiatric care. Mental illness, including drug and alcohol addictions, contribute to HIV transmission and can also serve as obstacles to care. Poverty, politics, domestic violence, and lack ofaccess to education are additional barriers to both HIV prevention and access to care in the Western Hemisphere and throughout the world. In areas where medical care and HIV care are available, persons with HIV and AIDS can have the same life expectancies as the general population and require thesame medical care as persons without HIV.This textbook provides a basic understanding of the comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions that cause distress, morbidity, and mortality in persons with HIV and AIDS while at the same time examining the public health and public policy aspects of the epidemic with a biopsychosocialapproach.
