Abstract and Keywords

Clinical geropsychology benefits from a global perspective in a variety of ways. Gerontological theories and interventions may find new applications and expressions when tested in different cultural settings, and the sharing of datasets internationally expands their utility. Importantly, the training of health professionals, and particularly mental health professionals, to cope with increasing numbers of geriatric patients globally, is lagging. In this chapter, some of the ways in which clinical geropsychology has matured into an international field are explored, with reference to the chapters in this Oxford Handbook of Clinical Geropsychology where appropriate.

Keywords: clinical geropsychology, ageing, cross-cultural, assessment, psychotherapy, longitudinal studies, training
