In Case Studies in Counseling Older Adults Larry Golden addresses a growing trend--older adults presenting for counseling--and the techniques that may be used to help treat them.  Golden has selected cases studies that highlight many common issues faced by older adults today, such as loss of a spouse, health, financial means, depression, and spirituality.  The organization of the cases provides the reader with a sense of the contributors' environment, the clients' contextual issues (i.e family, economics, health), the clients' presenting problems, and the therapeutic strategies implemented.  This book is a valuable resource to counselors who are seeking to enhance their expertise with innovative approaches to counseling older adults.
