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 : 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 : Provides information on the DSM-IV system, for example, how to use the Culture-Bound syndromes in order to produce a Cultural Formulation. Other features include coverage of the major classes of DSM-IV disorders, concise summaries of each class of disorder, visual aids, and summaries of treatments. The physical book is poorly made--a book block poorly pasted into a too-small case that caused our review copy to come apart at the spine. The wise buyer will avoid bibliochiropracty and save money by purchasing the paperback and a decent case to put it in. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR

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 : As efforts to develop a more unified national mental health policy continue, a public health framework within which to examine this process is necessary. This uniquely multidisciplinary work integrates knowledge derived from epidemiologic, treatment, and service systems research to develop such a framework. It provides the basic critical elements for understanding the organization, financing and delivery of mental health services. The text also addresses the delivery of mental health services to individuals from ethnic and racial minorities and discusses the role of consumers and advocates in mental health service systems. In addition, it examines epidemiologic, treatment, and service-delivery issues in three undeserved at-risk populations: children and adolescents, the elderly and adult substance abusers. Written by national experts in the field, this timely work will provide policymakers, administrators, graduate students, and service providers with the knowledge base needed to implement improvements and changes in mental health service systems.

Description : The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of dementia for psychiatrists and other health care practitioners who deal with cognitively impaired adults in outpatient, inpatient, and long-term care settings. With content ranging from clinical guidance to basic research, it contains information on nearly every subject related to dementing conditions or illnesses -- not only providing extensive coverage of clinical management issues but also enabling a deeper understanding of the causes of dementia. Designed to assist the practitioner faced with everyday dilemmas, from dosages of antipsychotic drugs to legal and ethical issues, this textbook describes in detail the most common conditions and diseases leading to dementia and covers pharmacologic, behavioral, and environmental treatments. It also considers a broader range of cognitive disorders and impairment in order to help practitioners recognize and treat primary brain diseases and systemic disorders affecting the brain before they reach the stage of dementia. Building on the editors' earlier work The Dementias: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Research, this new book expands on its scope, with nearly twice the number of contributors -- all clinicians or researchers at the vanguard of the field. New to this edition are chapters on epidemiology, history of dementia, biomarkers for Alzheimer disease, care of the late-stage dementia patient, prevention of dementia, and chapters devoted to: Vascular cognitive impairment, emphasizing the importance of early detection with development of appropriate treatments and risk factor control Dementia with Lewy bodies and other synucleinopathies, describing differences in cognitive profile between synucleinopathies and Alzheimer disease Frontotemporal dementias, including behavioral and language variants Traumatic brain injury, distinguishing between proximal and distal effects and risk factors for dementia later in life An abundance of charts and illustrations, extensive references and additional readings, and chapter-end key points make this a practical volume for learning, while appendixes include easily administered instruments useful in daily practice for grading cognition, day-to-day function, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and quality of life. Whether used as a clinical guide or as a sourcebook on technical and scientific developments, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an important reference for psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, and other health professionals who deal with cognitively impaired adults.
