Intellectual functioning in adults; psychological and biological influences by Lissy F Jarvik( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to this volume were drawn from selected symposia of the Division on Adult Development and Aging at the 76th and 78th annual meetings of the American Psychological Association. The four parts of the book are as follows: Part I. Individual Changes in Adult Intelligence: Longitudinal Approaches; Part ii. Somatic Components of Psychological Changes in Adults; Part iii. Potential Contribution of Life History Approaches; and Part iv. Summary. The first Part concentrates on longitudinal research in the field of aging. In the second Part, some of the somatic correlates of psychological change are examined, and data resulting from two longitudinal studies are included. Part iii represents a recognition of the yet untapped contribution of lifetime experiential variables to the physical and mental changes accompanying the aging process; and various modes of dealing with the problems of construction of a cogent life history interview are explored. Twelve authors are represented in this book. An extensive list of references is provided, and a subject index concludes the book. (Author/DB)

Psychopharmacology and aging by Carl Eisdorfer( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 1976 in English and Italian and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents the proceedings of a Symposium on Psychopharmacology and the Aging Patient, held at Duke University, May 29-31, 1972. The conference was jointly sponsored by the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development and the Department of Psychiatry at Duke. This Symposium was the first in a series of conferences which will be devoted variously to preclinical and clinical pharmacology of the different groups of psychotropic drugs, especially as they relate to the problems of the elderly patient and to the special considerations that must be given in theory and in practice to changes brought about by the process of aging. The idea behind this particular symposium was to bring basic and clinical scientists together with practicing clinicians and other mental health professionals for an exchange of ideas and interests through formal didactic and informal small sessions. The major interest, of course, was to disseminate current information on the clinical use and indication for psychoactive agents, particularly as they related to the elderly patient. Recognition and management of psychiatric syndromes of the elderly were included as they were pertinent to psychopharmacology of aging to indicate the direction of ongoing work and to stimulate further research in this area. The editors wish to gratefully acknowledge the generous financial support xiii xiv Foreword of the Symposium granted by the following pharmaceutical firms: Smith-Kline-French Laboratories Pfizer Laboratories and Abbott Laboratories Burroughs-Wellcome Company CIBA - Geigy Corporation Lakeside Laboratories McNeil Laboratories, Inc

Integrated textbook of geriatric mental health by Donna Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the population ages, increasing numbers of older people require the attention and services of mental health professionals. Despite their prevalence, however, mental health problems in this population often go undiagnosed and therefore untreated. This textbook offers medical students and professionals the information they need to care for older people with mental disorders. Drs. Donna Cohen and Carl Eisdorfer, two internationally recognized experts in geriatric mental health, provide a comprehensive framework within which students and practitioners alike can address the salient issues of the field. These include the biopsychosocial aging processes, specific pathologies prevalent in later life, social issues common to the elderly, the delivery of care in various settings, and the economic policies affecting services for older people. The authors' goal is not only to enhance clinical practice but also to urge physicians to develop and coordinate a more holistic care strategy that acknowledges the complex challenges of older patients. To this end, Cohen and Eisdorfer discuss essential principles of optimal care, the latest research findings, evidence- and consensus-based practice standards, resources to help professionals keep abreast of the changing mental health landscape, and ethical dilemmas of clinical practice and research. The signal strength of this book lies in its integrated approach, an approach that emphasizes the philosophy and principles of caring for older people along with clinical practices and issues. From this broader perspective, the authors describe the many factors that influence the lives, health, and well-being of older patients and their caregivers, making this an ideal text for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers."
