It adopts a client-centred and research-orientated approach. The multi-disciplinary approach is important because care of the elderly is shared among so many professionals. The book is divided into 4 sections: mental health, old age and society; understanding mental health problems in later life; therapeutic interventions; and organisation of care. The market for this book is growing as the ageing population expands.
