Counseling older adults is not equivalent to counseling the general
population, and specialized skills and knowledge, as well as
sensitivity to the contexts in which older adults live, are
essential in working successfully with this population. This text
provides an introduction to gerontological counseling, integrating
the basic skills of working with older adults with theories of
counseling and aging. Specific counseling issues discussed include
mental health counseling, career counseling, rehabilitation
counseling, and family counseling. Along with these, important
contextual factors such as race/culture, social class, social
justice, spirituality, Alzheimer's and other dementias, and family
issues are considered in light of the latest research. Each chapter
contains case studies, discussion questions, a glossary, and
suggestions for further reading to reinforce the material
