Successful Aging: Integrating Contemporary Ideas, Research Findings, and Intervention Strategies offers students and practitioners interested in adulthood and aging an integration of contemporary ideas, research findings, and intervention strategies for aging—normal, abnormal, and successful. The author focuses on integrating discipline-specific research and theory about aging, particularly aging in later adulthood, in language that is understandable to practitioners of diverse educational backgrounds. Chapter 1, Facts on Aging, requires the reader’s active participation in learning about aging-related facts and issues. This chapter also deals with aspects of successful aging, with an emphasis on individual decisions impacting long-term lifestyles. Chapter 2 presents principles and ideas about aging, within the broader context of lifespan development. This chapter merges significant aspects of aging with lifespan development principles, promoting strategies for successful aging. Chapter 3 summarizes traditional and contemporary research methodologies for gerontology and lifespan development. Chapter 4 highlights two models of lifespan development and aging. Communal and personal intervention strategies for success throughout the lifespan are shared in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 deals with social policies impacting older adults, as well as projections of assistance in retirement from middle age citizens. Chapter 7 provides conclusions and ideas for normal and successful aging. The book will be useful to undergraduate and graduate students as a supplemental text for lifespan development psychology, life course sociology, social work, medical, adulthood, and aging courses. For practitioners, the book will provide contemporary information concerning multidimensional aspects of aging and alternative intervention strategies.
