9780123808820: Handbook of the Psychology of Aging, Seventh Edition (Handbooks of Aging)

The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging, Seventh Edition, provides a basic reference source on the behavioral processes of aging for researchers, graduate students, and professionals. It also provides perspectives on the behavioral science of aging for researchers and professionals from other disciplines.
The book is organized into four parts. Part 1 reviews key methodological and analytical issues in aging research. It examines some of the major historical influences that might provide explanatory mechanisms for a better understanding of cohort and period differences in psychological aging processes. Part 2 includes chapters that discuss the basics and nuances of executive function; the history of the morphometric research on normal brain aging; and the neural changes that occur in the brain with aging. Part 3 deals with the social and health aspects of aging. It covers the beliefs that individuals have about how much they can control various outcomes in their life; the impact of stress on health and aging; and the interrelationships between health disparities, social class, and aging. Part 4 discusses the emotional aspects of aging; family caregiving; and mental disorders and legal capacities in older adults.

Handbook of the Psychology of Aging, 7th edition

Edited by K. Warner Schaie and Sherry L. Willis

Associate editors: Bob G. Knight, Becca Levy, and Denise C. Park

The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging, 7e is 100% revised from the 6th edition, with one third of the previous topics covered by new authors and two thirds of entirely new topics. Providing a comprehensive synthesis and review of the latest research findings in the psychology of aging, it is intended as a summary for researchers, and is also suitable as a high level textbook for graduate and upper level undergraduate courses. The 24 chapters are organized into four sections: Part I Concepts, Theory and Methods in the Psychology of Aging; Part II Neuroscience, Cognition and Aging; Part III Social and Health Factors that Impact Aging; and Part IV Complex Behavioral Processes and Psychopathology of Aging.

The 7th edition expands coverage of neuropsychology including how structural changes to the brain have cognitive consequences, the neuroplasticity of cognitive function, neuropsychological assessment of dementia, and executive functioning in cognitive aging. Additional new coverage focuses on other factors affecting psychological aspects of aging including, stress, sense of control, and socioeconomic class, and with new chapters on relationships and communication, and aging in the work context.

Contributors to this volume represent the global research community, with contributors from the US, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Australia, Canada, and Switzerland. The Handbook will be of use to researchers and professionals working with an aging community, as well as being suitable as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on the psychology of aging.
