Main description:

Part of the Pittsburgh Pocket Psychiatry series, this volume comprehensively and definitively addresses geriatric psychiatry, focusing on depression, dementia, anxiety as well as managing the caregivers. Additional chapters cover psychotherapy, legal issues, alcohol and drug use, and chronic pain management.

Designed to be a highly practical, clinical guide for practitioners, each chapter is clearly written by one or more faculty members from Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, many of whom are recognized experts in their field. Self-assessment questions help the student learn the material.

Average Rating 

The range of chapters provides a comprehensive examination of the area of geriatric psychiatry, truly distinguishing it as a unique field and not just as an application of general psychiatry to the geriatric patient... an excellent addition to the literature on geriatric psychiatry. As a physician dually trained in internal medicine and psychiatry who also completed a geriatric medicine fellowship, I will be recommending this book to all of my colleagues in geriatric medicine, geriatric psychiatry, general psychiatry, family practice, and even internists in primary care. I could find little to fault in this excellent text ... All who are working or training to work with old people affected by psychiatric and cognitive disorders (i.e. nearly every health professional in the world) should try to get their hands on this book and then read it from cover to cover.
