    Summary: "Science-based guidance on assessing and supporting family caregivers to maintain good mental health. This is the first book that takes a "deep dive" to answer questions that mental health providers encounter when caregivers are referred to them or seek services on their own--namely, what unique issues family caregivers face that impact their mental health. Based on the science and clinical experience the authors have accumulated over years of research and direct service, the volume focuses on examining the issues that caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia face. Practitioners learn about the best tools for assessment and which evidence-based interventions help reduce caregiver distress, including cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and multicomponent intervention programs. The book is interspersed with clinical vignettes that also highlight issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is an essential text for mental health providers from a variety of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, nursing, social work, marriage and family counselors as well as trainees. Resources in the appendix can be used in clinical practice, including a caretaker intake interview."-- Provided by publisher.
