Summary

Building on the success of "Practical Psychiatry of Old Age" now in its Fourth Edition, this book looks in more detail at affective disorders from a variety of perspectives. It includes expert contributions on areas such as aetiology, diagnosis and psychological and pharmacological treatment. It also focuses on a contextual approach to the management of affective disorders in areas like primary care and geriatric medicine, as well as the specific contributions of disciplines such as nursing, social work and occupational therapy. User and carer viewpoints are also included, along with the often neglected spiritual aspects of managing these conditions. This balanced, inclusive and practical approach makes it ideal for all members of the multi-disciplinary team involved in the management of affective disorders in older people.
