The Psychotherapy Of The Elderly Self
People grow old. We are terrified by the fact. And this fear has translated into a pervasive neglect of the elderly across all spheres of living. Now Dr. Hyman Muslin steps forward to challenge the mental health field to reevaluate its perspective on this powerful human resource. The book is written in the effort to dispel some of the myths of aging; to highlight old age as a natural developmental phase and to delineate an effective model of observation, diagnosis and therapy for working with the elderly. Ultimately, Dr. Muslin's message is one of hope - for older individuals currently in need of psychological help and for the elderly self who awaits us all.
