The following conclusions can be drawn from the 114th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association as highlighted in the preceding summary:

  • Both naltrexone and CBI are useful treatments for alcohol dependence.

  • The elderly have special issues of adjustment in regard to family issues and work. Companies may benefit by addressing these issues for their older employees.

  • Timing of immigration (ie, at what age an individual immigrated from Asia to the United States) is related to mental health and the likelihood of developing mental illness among Asian Americans.
