T Psychology and the Aging Revolution:
How We Adapt to Longer Life
Editors: Sara Honn Qualls, PhD and Norman Abeles, PhD
Children born today can expect to live about 76 years, almost 30 years longer than those born a century ago.
How society and individuals facing 20-30 years of meaningful activity after retirement deal with the changes brought on by this aging revolution?
Recognizing the capabilities and changing needs of our aging population.
The latest theories and research on how aging affects many critical areas of life:
physical and mental health
responses to psychotherapy.
This home study course is designed to help participants:
Assess memory changes in adulthood.
Analyze variations in depression in later life.
Describe expressive, physiological and subjective changes in emotion across adulthood.
Explain a behavioral medicine perspective on aging and health.
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.
