A Volume in the Jossey-Bass Library of Current Clinical Technique

Few mental health professionals are adequately trained to meet the unique needs of the 65-plus age-group. Written by experts--and in some cases pioneers--in the field, Treating the Elderly is filled with the most up-to-date information needed for developing the skills necessary to work with the special needs and sensibilities of this population.

Filled with proven clinical techniques and strategies for helping clients deal with the most common emotional problems and issues of aging such as

* onset depression and anxiety
* the effect of physical decline and illness
* changing sexuality
* intermediate and long-term care
* problems of competence and cognitive decline
* insomnia

JAVAID I. SHEIKH is associate professor of psychiatry at the Stanford University School of Medicine and founding director of the Geriatric Psychiatry Program at Stanford Medical Center.
