Among the growing population living in nursing homes and assisted-living communities, emotional and behavioral problems are frequently undiagnosed and unaddressed. Increased interest in these elders’ quality of life has brought geropsychology to the fore as a major specialty, as evinced by Psychologists in Long-Term Care (PLTC). This organization has been instrumental in establishing standards for appropriate, respectful, and ethical care, and developing education and training resources for professionals. Geropsychology and Long Term Care is just such a resource, aimed at practitioners at all levels of experience, regardless of theoretical orientation. The contributors, all experts affiliated with PLTC, offer coverage that is up-to-date, readily accessible, and eminently useful, whether the reader needs information on bedrock skills, multidisciplinary treatment, privacy issues, or the way facilities are run. Table of contents 1: Policies and Reimbursement: Meeting the Need for Mental Health Care in Long Term Care.- 2: Referrals.- 3: Providers.- 4: Assessment.- 5: Treatment Plans.- 6: Treatment Process.- 7: Integration of Psychiatry Medication and Psychology in Long Term Care.- 8: Documentation and Outcomes Measurement.- 9: Ethical Issues in Long Term Care.- Bibliography.- Index.
