"The Handbook of Gerontology: Evidence-Based Approaches to Theory, Practice, and Policy" provides an essential source of important theoretical and applied information on gerontology for all mental health professionals interested in optimizing the health and well-being of older adults.

A global perspective on aging

Elder abuse
