Summary

Mental health care for older adults inevitably involves work with issues related to dying. This book provides a practical overview of clinical issues related to end-of-life care including grief and bereavement. Beginning with the physiology of the dying process and its effects on patients and their loved ones, the book addresses the range of psychological interventions that can ease the process for all. Topics include the integration of psychological services into palliative and hospice care, differential diagnosis of depression-grief-bereavement; complicated bereavement, interventions for conflicted families, and the role of the context of death on psychological services. As is characteristic of other books in this series, this book integrates research with practical clinical guidance.
