This text is the first of its kind to substantively integrate alcoholism, aging, and grief theories into an easy-to-understand format for interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate students in the behavioral and physical sciences. Written to prepare students in working with an elderly clientele, the reader is provided with elder-specific practice methodology derived from experiential and theoretical content. Chapters 1 through 4 alert the readers to the nature of elderly alcoholism and accompanying aging theories. Chapter 5 underscores the challenges faced by professionals in identifying elderly alcoholism because the symptoms often mimic other diseases, namely, acute dementia. Chapter 6 is a comprehensive study of elder-specific populations, including people of color, lesbians, gays, and the homeless. Chapters 7 through 13 are essentially practice intervention chapters that include in-depth discussions of such issues as strategies to encourage elderly alcoholics to enter treatment, practice values and attitudes, intervention strategies, spirituality, relapse, and suicide prevention strategies. Also provided are on-site interviews with professional counselors at elder-specific alcoholism treatment programs, and summaries of these interviews appear in Chapter 13 as well as actual case studies. Each chapter includes study questions, the glossary of terms, and a comprehensive bibliography of research specific to the issues. This book will also be useful to professionals who provide services to an elderly population, including nurses, physicians, social workers, and alcoholism counselors.

Responding to the Homeless: Policy and Practice is largely a product of a unique collaboration between Russell K. Schutt and Gerald R. Garrett and their Boston community. As such, it offers a rich perspective on the problem of homelessness that is derived from the authors' shared experience with researchers, academics, students, providers, policymakers, and homeless persons themselves. Schutt and Garrett take the reader into the shelters and acquaint him or her with the philosophical and practical dilemmas facing line workers as well as policymakers. They also take the reader into the community to better understand the housing market and the dysfunctional continuities among shelter, housing, treatment, and social supports. There are sensitive discussions of the salient health problems that too commonly touch the lives of homeless individuals, such as substance abuse and AIDS. The volume also includes clear descriptions of the sometimes elusive processes of counseling and case management for homeless individuals. The sidebars of "what to do" and "what not to do" contain useful information that will both inform and empower individuals who are working on the front lines, and inspire and prepare future caregivers. While the eminently readable organization and style of the book are sugges tive of a highly practical handbook on the basics of homelessness, the authors and their contributors have also produced a scholarly volume that is replete with current research findings, programs descriptions, case studies, and vignettes.
