Hispanic Aged Mental Health describes the influence of cultural factors on the aging process of elderly Hispanic persons in the United States. Emphasizing a clinically relevant presentation of mental health issues in this population, it focuses on incidence and assessment of dementia and depression and describes various forms of intervention that may be used. This unique book helps clinicians better understand and work with Hispanic elderly and their families. Chapters cover a wide range of topics within the subject to give a broad view of the problems often faced by elderly Hispanic people. Topics addressed include life satisfaction, ethnocultural themes in caregiving, acculturation and depression of Hispanics in the U.S., alcoholism, self-reliant behavior, treating the sequelae of a curse, and barriers to health care access. Several psychometric scales in Spanish translation are included to help facilitate treatment of Spanish speaking clients. Psychologists, psychiatrists, gerontologists, social workers, counselors, and all people who work with elderly Hispanic people will find Hispanic Aged Mental Health an invaluable guide in their daily practice.
