Product description


Felicity Chapman's 'out of the box' approach to psychotherapeutic work with older adults is a refreshing and much needed text which infuses a strong interest in the lived narrative. This area of health care has not received the attention, nor the research, that it deserves. This book provides clinicians with a manual filled with real life accounts that are honest and heart-warming. Readers are led on a journey of belief that older people in care still have much to teach and share and deserve to be provided with opportunities to work through a variety of psychological issues. It is to be commended to anyone who cares about the well-being of older adults. -- Julianne Whyte, OAM, CEO and Founder of the Amaranth Foundation In Counselling and Psychotherapy with Older People in Care Felicity Chapman sets out to excite and equip psychotherapists across disciplines to create spaces of hope and re-invigoration for ageing populations in care. By sharing stories of her psychotherapeutic work with seniors such as Harold we are invited into the complexities and challenges of the work as well as being introduced to evidence based practice and practice based evidence. The detailed account of relevant psychological approaches offers a breadth of perspective. The illuminating personal stories of the elderly and the meticulous unpacking of work within residential care systems are written with rigor, elegance and humor and makes for compelling reading. Her book is a must-read guide! -- Shona Russell, Mental health social worker, Co-Director Narrative Practices Adelaide

Product Description

The global population is ageing rapidly yet there is a shortage of skilled professionals able to support the wellbeing of older people in care. Older people can be more vulnerable to mental health issues such as loneliness, anxiety, grief, loss, and cognitive changes, and need therapeutic support that addresses their specific needs and conditions.

This supportive guide for psychotherapists, counsellors and other professionals working with older people, addresses the growing demand for mental health services for older adults. It covers a range of issues that arise within this demographic including residential living, the referral process, assessment and engagement, and attitudes towards ageing, while contextualising these issues within larger social and political frameworks. The author describes specific interventions such as Narrative Therapy, Reminiscence Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with practical case studies woven in throughout the book.
