Late-Life Depression

Edited by Steven P. Roose, M.D. and Harold A. Sackeim

Society is aging and illnesses that are prevalent and devastating in older individuals will consume an increasingly greater share of our health care resources. Depression is a devastating illness in the elderly that results in deterioration in quality of life and an increase in mortality from suicide and vascular disease. This is the first volume devoted exclusively to an understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder. Leading researchers and clinicians contribute chapters on the epidemiology, phenomenology, physiology, treatment, and long-term outcome of late-life depression. This book was designed to be accessible and useful to clinicians, researchers, educators, and students in psychiatry, gerontology, clinical psychology, and social work.
