Praise for the First Edition

`Bob G Knight not only provides an avenue for therapists to get up-to-date in this field, but he even considers the future... This book is indeed a major contribution to the developing trend that psychotherapists who work with older adults need to become competent as geropsychotherapists!' - Contemporary Psychology

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, the author 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bob G. Knight's largest contribution is his excellent discussion of therapy. The book is clearly written, with a good use of summaries and case examples to clarify the major points. By linking research findings to practice experience, Knight has provided a pragmatic introduction which should be helpful to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses working with older adults." -- JOURNAL OF APPLIED GERONTOLOGY
"I recommend this book to anyone interested in working with the elderly, partly because of the content and partly because the author presents the case for doing psychotherapy with the elderly with realism and enthusiasm." -- BEHAVIOR RESEARCH & THERAPY
