Description:

2005 AJN Book of the Year Award Winner! First pioneered by Irene Burnside,Working with Older Adults: Group Process and Techniquesis now in its fourth edition, with new editors and many new contributing authors, including professionals and academic psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, nurses, a retirement counselor, and a music therapist. By combining interdisciplinary theory and practice, this book introduces students to both group work theories, and explains how to modify general theory to meet the needs of older adults, including those who are contending with particular physical and cognitive disabilities. In an easily accessible style, with numerous case studies in varying settings (hospitals, nursing homes, residential facilities, day centers, and home care),Working with Older Adultsemphasizes group development, structure, process, and evaluating outcomes. This book addresses the ethnic and cultural differences relevant to group practice with ethnic minority elders, as well as the growing number of people with dementia. Each chapter includes key words, learning objectives, case studies, application exercises, references and bibliographies, and literature review.
