Summary

Children born today can expect to live about 76 years, almost 30 years longer than those born a century ago. How can society and individuals facing 20-30 years of meaningful activity after retirement deal with the changes brought on by this aging revolution? Psychology has been one of the most active disciplines in studying the aging process, and this new book provides many answers to understanding the capabilities and changing needs of our aging population.

This edited volume examines the latest theories and research on how aging affects many critical areas of life: cognition, memory, social relationships, emotion, physical and mental health, and responses to psychotherapy. In each of these areas, readers will find contributions by leading geropsychologists. The findings discussed in this book clearly show that while later life brings inevitable decline and losses, aging also fosters positive characteristics such as wisdom and emotional maturity. This is a key book for therapists, counselors, graduate students and anyone working with the elderly.
