In 1992 Elliott Stein proposed the formation of a Committee on Senior Psychiatrists. One of the missions of this committee (currently chaired by Irving Cohen) is to investigate continued work among "older" (defined as those age 60 and older) psychiatrists, including gathering descriptions of successful and unsuccessful models, and disseminating this information to APA’s membership. Notably, approximately one-third of all APA members are age 60 or over. There is also a group called the Lifers that comprises APA Life Members and Life Fellows, who number about 700. Although the Committee on Senior Psychiatrists and the Lifers have somewhat different aims, they often work together. Finally, in response to Dr. Cohen’s hope that "my chronologic psychiatric peers and I continue to learn, grow, and treat with zest the assorted woes that we will find in DSM-XXI," I can only say, "Amen."
