Books Info:

Psychotherapy with Older Adults free pdf Now in a Third Edition, Bob G Knight's best-selling book continues to offer students and professionals a thorough overview of psychotherapy with older adults. Using the contextual, cohort-based, maturity, specific challenge (CCMSC) model, it draws upon findings from scientific gerontology and life-span developmental psychology to describe how psychotherapy needs to be adapted for work with older adults and when it is similar to therapeutic work with younger adults. Sensitively linking both research and experience, Bob Knight provides a practical account of the knowledge, technique, and skills necessary to work with older adults in a therapeutic relationship. This volume considers the essentials of gerontology as well as the nature of therapy in depth, focusing on special content areas and common themes.
