The Oxford Textbook of Old Age Psychiatry is the new edition of the much loved and highly popular multi-author textbook previously published as Psychiatry in the Elderly. It has established itself as the standard textbook in its field due to its unique combination of comprehensive coverage, clear writing and authoritative and up-to-date information. This new edition maintains these strengths, with chapters covering the basic sciences underpinning old age psychiatry, clinical practice, psychiatric services for older people, specific disorders and medico-legal and ethical issues. The text has been extensively updated, with several new chapters added reflecting developments in the speciality. These include chapters on: different psychotherapies, e.g. interpersonal therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, and electroconvulsive therapy; memory clinics and liaison old age psychiatry; mild cognitive impairment and sleep disorders; and chapters by patients reflecting their experiences of their illnesses. The textbook has expanded to include 73 contributors from 8 different countries covering the panoply of relevant expertise.The editorial team has also grown with Robin Jacoby and Catherine Oppenheimer now being joined by Tom Dening and Alan Thomas. The breadth of authoritative coverage will continue to make this book one which all old age psychiatrists and trainees will want to have on their bookshelves. Geriatricians and other health professionals working with older people will also find in this book a handy resource to assist them when dealing with psychiatric disorders in older people.
