Age and Gender Considerations in Psychiatric Diagnosis
has 44 contributors from among our most prolific and respected
researchers, and it has relatively few sentences without a reference.
The goals of this ambitious undertaking include discussing
the seeds and directions for future research, increasing
clinical understanding with current evidence base—useful in
developing more effective treatment—and developing a prevention
component to diminish disabilities.
The inclusion in the diagnostic and treatment processes of
the many aspects of aging in very early and later life and the
ever broadening aspects of gender/sex (with the term gender
now more frequently preferred), e.g., chromosomal, genetic,
gonadal, genital, assigned sociocultural gender, all of which can
affect the brain, are among the special foci in this volume.
