Abstract
Filling a gap in the current literature, Adult Learning: Linking Theory and Practice offers an overview of the major theories and research in adult learning. Written in highly accessible language and designed to be practical for use in both formal and informal settings, this important resource reviews the forces that influence today's adult learner including globalization, the knowledge society, technology, and demographic changes. Comprehensive in scope, the book summarizes five foundational learning theories and then examines the more recent breakthrough theories of adult learning such as andragogy and transformative learning. Sharan Merriam and Laura Bierema present an understanding of how life experiences and learning are integrally related and review the role of motivation and learning. They also include some of the exciting new work in neuroscience and learning and explore the brain's cognitive functioning including memory, intelligence, cognitive development, and wisdom. In addition, the authors address the pervasiveness of technology and reveal how the influence of our digital age both engages and distracts our ability to learn. At the end of each chapter, Adult Learning: Linking Theory and Practice offers activities and resources for readers to explore their own learning as well as to use in instructional settings.

Abstract
In this book, expert researchers and practitioners share essential information about providing mental health services to older adults in forensic contexts, and to the courts and judges involved. As the U.S. population ages, the needs of older adults will increasingly inform all areas of mental health practice. In coming years, psychologists can expect to play a more prominent role in helping legal decision makers to understand the unique aspects of older adults'cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Clinical providers will have more opportunity to help older adults and their families as they struggle with challenging legal issues such as civil litigation, eligibility for benefits, and incarceration. Chapters in this book describe the nuts and bolts of civil litigation as it relates to brain injury, dementia, PTSD, and pain; assessment of competency to stand trial and to be executed; and the special treatment needs of incarcerated older adults. Also included are chapters on assessing testamentary capacity, assessing older adults pursuing VA benefits, and psychology's role in guardianship and conservatorship decisions.

Abstract
This comprehensive guide describes evolving technologies in the field of mental and behavioral health. Contributors to this book demonstrate how technology fosters better access to care, through video teleconferencing systems, mental health-related apps, and other tools. Technological advances can also lead to improved treatments, through virtual reality, neurofeedback, and other device-based protocols that complement pharmacological treatments and psychotherapy. Authors also illustrate the many ways technology can be used to further professional development, whether by improving the quality of one's work, or transforming research and clinical insights into innovative business practices. There are many ways to provide technology-based or technology-assisted mental health services. This book helps clinical and counseling professionals determine which technological advances best align with their goals, and strategically consider how they will purchase new tools and train users, while ensuring clients' personal health information is protected.
